Honor Roll: Lexington Park, Albany, New York

The City of Albany is the capital of New York State and the county seat of Albany County. It was founded by the Dutch settlers as Beverwijck and was part of their New Netherlands colony. When the British took over the area, the settlement became known as Albany. The Dongan Charter established Albany as a city in 1686 and it is the oldest U.S. city charter still in effect. Albany was a transportation center for much of its history -- first for the fur trade, then lumber.

Lexington Park is bounded by Washington Avenue, Hawk, Elk and Eagle Streets, across Washington Avenue from the historic state capitol building. On the grounds of the park is a memorial honoring the men who were killed in Vietnam.
