Inspired by Paris' Hôtel-de-Ville
, the New York State Capitol Building is a marvel of late 19th-century architecture. With its French-style exterior of white marble imported from Maine, it was more expensive to build than the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.! One of the highlights here includes the "Million Dollar" Staircase in the main lobby adorned in lavishly carved stone sculptures. There are free guided tours available Monday through Friday; if your group is ten or more, please book in advance.
