The city of Troy is located on the east side of the Hudson River just north of Albany, and is best known as the home of "Uncle Sam" - the goateed, patriotic figure that grew to symbolize the United States government.

Welcome To Troy New York It is also known as the Collar City, having supported twenty-six collar, cuff and shirt manufacturing facilities in 1901. No longer active in the garment industry, the City of Troy is currently undergoing a significant cultural and economic renaissance.

Improvements to the downtown and the revitalization of the waterfront area include the introduction of excellent restaurants, cultural attractions, and new and unique shops. Troy enjoys a rich and diverse population that provides a wonderful flair to its culinary profile, with restaurants featuring Italian, Greek, Chinese, Mexican, Caribbean and Lebanese cuisine. Economic revival is evident in the heart of the city, where historic architecture is being preserved and real estate is moving at a brisk pace.
