Affordable, vibrant, diverse and growing. Come to a place where you can make a difference.

Start your day with a bike ride across the Hudson. Grab an espresso at your favorite cafe. Work your job — Fortune 500 pharma, freelance web developer, loan officer at a community-based bank, baker, organic farmer… Next it’s local brews and an open mic. Go home to water your garden, tweak your latest game designs, watch the last of the sunset from your porch.

Room to breathe. Dream big. Live large. CapNY. CAPable of aNYthing.
