The Old Post Office, also known as the United States Government Building, is located at the intersection of State Street and Broadway in Albany, New York, United States. It was built from 1879 to 1883 at a cost of $627,148.
Plans for the building had been made two decades prior to its construction. Originally it was to be a larger Gothic Revival structure, but the time and the costs of acquiring the land exceeded the original budget, and a smaller post office in the Italian Renaissance Revival style was erected instead. Since 1977 it has been part of SUNY Plaza, and is used as offices by the central administration of the State University of New York. Postal operations moved to larger facilities prior to 1972, but the building continued to house federal government offices for a few years.
