The design of this structure offered a novel solution to the danger of placing a gas house in the middle of a City: It was engineered such that the mass of the thick masonry walls would direct an accidental explosion upwards through the comparatively light-weight construction of the steel frame and copper clad roof, thus theoretically sparing the surrounding neighborhood.
I know this skyline well. I lived in E. Greenbush for 4 years and my father worked for NYSERDA in the #2 agency building. Great photo.

Hi. I'm launching a national campaign called Green the Grounds (until launch, seen at: http://www.gardenrant.com/green_the_grounds/
It's to encourage the White House and other prominent sites to "green" their landscapes, and the NY Gov Mansion is a "success story." No money will be made on this, no ads, nothing. Can we use this photo, with credit? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
Nice Photo. Voted
