ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Albany Waterway Canal Project is hosting an illustrated talk on the project with artist Len Tantillo and architect Susannah Drake on November 19. The Albany Waterway is a transformative, collaborative canal project that reestablishes and re-envisions Albany’s historic, social, and economic connections to the Hudson River and the Erie Canal.

For over 400, water and commerce flowed in Albany from its ports and canals. Organizers explain the project will bring opportunities that can emerge from this new and renewed access to the Albany waterfront, recreation, arts and culture, sustainable development, and more, Albany will regain the vibrancy, energy, and stature that its citizens and businesses deserve.
