Albany (/ˈɔːlbəni/ (listen) AWL-bən-ee) is the capital of the U.S. state of New York, also the seat and largest city of Albany County. Albany is on the west bank of the Hudson River, about 10 miles (16 km) south of its confluence with the Mohawk River, and about 135 miles (220 km) north of New York City.
The city is known for its architecture, commerce, culture, institutions of higher education, and rich history. It is the economic and cultural core of the Capital District of the State of New York, which comprises the Albany–Schenectady–Troy Metropolitan Statistical Area, including the nearby cities and suburbs of Troy, Schenectady, and Saratoga Springs. With an estimated population of 1.1 million in 2013, the Capital District is the third most populous metropolitan region in the state. As of 2020, Albany's population was 99,224.
The Hudson River area was originally inhabited by Algonquian-speaking Mohican (Mahican), who called it Pempotowwuthut-Muhhcanneuw. The area was settled by Dutch colonists who, in 1614, built Fort Nassau for fur trading and in 1624, built Fort Orange. In 1664, the English took over the Dutch settlements, renaming the city Albany in honor of the Duke of Albany, the future James II. The city was officially chartered in 1686 under English rule. It became the capital of New York in 1797 after the formation of the United States. Albany is one of the oldest surviving settlements of the original British thirteen colonies; no other city in the United States has been continuously chartered as long.
With a telescoping flagpole, the convenience is undeniable! No matter where you are, it's easy to show off your pride with one of these poles. (They're) perfect for special occasions such as Fourth of July parades and protests, or just to display the American flag out front of your home.
The biggest advantage that these poles offer is their portability. You can easily collapse them down and take them wherever you need to go without having to dissemble any parts. Plus, they come in various sizes, so you can get one that fits all your needs. Moreover, installation is quick and simple, no tools necessary!
Another great benefit of using a telescoping flagpole is its durability. These poles are built tough and won't rust or corrode - even after years in the elements. Furthermore, they don't require much maintenance; just an occasional cleaning will do!
Finally yet importantly, there's no hassle when it comes to storing a telescoping flagpole either: simply retract it down into itself and store away until next time. This makes them ideal for people who want to be able to show their patriotic spirit at events but don't want the permanent fixture of a regular pole in their yard or driveway.
