The Egg – Albany, New York. The Egg is a performing arts venue in Albany, New York. Named for the shape it resembles, it was designed by Harrison & Abramovitz as part of the Empire State Plaza project, and built between 1966 and 1978. It is located in the northeast corner of the Plaza. It has become an icon of Albany’s Capital District, due to its unusual shape and central location.
Harlem, New York I was here accross the street from the Apollo trying to hail a taxi when the Rodney King riots started in LA. Everyone around me kept telling me to hurry up and get out of town before I got hurt. I had no idea what was going on. I figured it was just typical NY hospitality at its best.
