Yes, I checked on city-data before I posted.

Albany, NY- when I think of NY, I automatically think of Manhattan/
NYC/THE Big Apple.
Apparently my 10 yr. old did as well while studying state capitols
this year!

Yeah, that Albany thing is a big bone of contention. Manhattan's great but it couldn't be a further anthesis from the whole rest of the entirety of the state. Two completely different worlds. Makes it hard to function in one government.

I remember a past governor whose re-election campaign ads showed him "in his office" with a view out his window of the Manhattan skyline. Needless to say, he didn't get my vote. I also had to laugh out loud when Hillary, who lives in the NYC burbs, came to the state fair (upstate) dressed in a bold red and white checked shirt. She looked like she was ready for a ho-down.

H,mmm

NYC becomes the capital of NY. It all ready got the UN. Next Hillary dresses in red, becomes President and moves DC to NYC. Talk about World Government, that is scary.

I didn't know Hillary could do any kind of Ho stuff. I only remember seeing her once on the beach that time with Bill.

That what happens when people start wanting to over turn the policy I stated before. Keep state capitols as back water places, in smaller less important locations. Just because the worse really could happen if you allow it to get started.

Portland should be the capital of Maine. However, Augusta is more centrally located for all those legislators coming to do their fiscal duties.
