The City of Immigrants and Internal Mediation
Albany, New York is a city on the west bank of the Hudson River about 135
miles north of New York City. It is the capital of New York and is 21.8
square miles in size. The city is home to almost 100,000 people.
Albany is considered the "City of Immigrants." People from all
over the world have moved to this area. The location was first dominated
by Dutch and Germans but was overtaken by the English back in the 19th
century. Irish immigrants later dominated the population but they were
soon intermixed with Italians and Poles who started moving to the area.
In the mid-to-late 20th century, there was a rise in the African-American
population. A Jewish community saw rise during the 19th century in this
area, and Albany saw an influx of Chinese and east Asian immigrants in
the downtown of this city at the same time.
According to data collected by the 2010 U.S. Census, the racial makeup
of Albany is as follows:
- 57% White
- 30.8% African-American
- 0.3% Native American
- 5.0% Alaskan
- 0.01% Native Hawaiian
- 3.7% two or more races
- 10.6% Hispanic or Latino
