Visitors to New York state's Capitol this summer will be able to take advantage of new free tours of the historic building and the nearby Empire State Plaza.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the 30-minute tours of the plaza will focus on its history and design. The tour will include stops at the plaza concourse, the Egg Center for the Performing Arts and the outdoor plaza, which is adjacent to the Capitol and includes several state buildings and memorials.
The plaza tours are offered at 11:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. Monday through Friday, through October 30.
In addition, two additional tours of the state Capitol have been added throughout the summer.
Reservations are required for groups of 10 or more.
