Troy, NY is where the Hudson River meets the Erie Canal. The one-time shipping center is no longer an industrial powerhouse - but architectural reminders of its glory days remain. Federal-style estates, industrial-era factories, Georgian brownstones, and 20th century bungalows lend a sense of history to leafy neighborhoods and cafe-lined waterfront.
