 Dear Guests,

Welcome to Rensselaer County's Internet home page. If you live here, we hope you are able to access the services you need, and if you don't live here we hope you have similar good fortune and encourage you to come visit us...who knows...you may decide to stay.

As one of the earliest of New York's counties, Rensselaer has a population of about 153,000 residing over 665 beautiful picturesque square miles. The quality of life as portrayed in our 14 towns, six villages, and two cities, lends to the air of spirit and togetherness symbolic of what life should be about. The County seat is Troy, known as the home of Uncle Sam and our other city, Rensselaer, sits on the bank of the historic Hudson River, directly across from the Empire State's Capital, Albany.

The county slogan, "Life Looks Good From Here" is consistent with our identity. We are an excellent place to live, to work, to shop, to raise a family, and yes, to start a business. The economic, educational, and recreational opportunities to be found in our County are second to none. And our refreshing blend of rural and hi-tech influences makes us truly appealing.

"Convenience" could be a secondary slogan for us. We are located within 250 miles of New York City, Boston, Montreal, and Buffalo, placing us in the hub of North American activity, and are easily accessible to the New York State Thruway and well as cialis the Taconic Parkway. Additionally, we are home to one of the busiest yet most customer friendly Amtrak facilities in the northeast. Add to this a certain New England flavor by virtue of bordering Vermont and Massachusetts, and we indeed provide lifestyles for everyone.

I guess by now you have figured out that I am really proud of Rensselaer County...of what we have and what we will achieve in the future...but don't let me influence you...for more information you are encouraged to follow links on this page for instant connection to Rensselaer County services, cultural and recreational opportunities, colleges and universities...and much, much more.
Thanks for your visit.
