The latest stop on Sebastien's Urban Decay Tour of the Capital Region™: the soon-to-be-no-longer Wellington Hotel in downtown Albany. From Sebastien's photoset page:
We pay a visit to The Wellington Hotel in Albany. One of Albany's once famous landmark, this slim 10-story building designed by Albert Fuller and completed in 1905 on top of State Street Hill has been empty for more than 20 years. Dust, old paint, graffiti, porn, World War II paintings and playing cards glued to the walls whisper the story of fairly strange inhabitants.
There's a lot more info posted there. B also has a photoset from the building -- it includes a lot of graffiti.
The Wellington is slated to be demolished this year.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
