Historic Albany is working with consultant, Chris Brazee of Troy, to create Albany’s newest National Register historic district celebrating the city’s western gateway into the downtown.  The proposed Washington Avenue Corridor Historic District will focus on Washington Avenue from South Swan Street to North Lake Avenue and will include previously missed properties between the new district and the existing historic districts on South Swan Street, Lark Street, and South Lake Avenue, as well as a portion of Western Avenue, Bradford and West Streets.
