Troy may very well have more Tiffany windows per square mile than any other city in the nation.
We will briefly describe the life’s work of Louis Comfort Tiffany and then guide you on a walking and driving tour of the abundant Tiffany windows and interior designs in downtown Troy, NY.
Some have claimed that Troy has more Tiffany windows per square mile than any other city in the world. That may or may not be true, but it is certain that it has a world-class collection of Tiffany windows in its downtown that includes some of the more significant Tiffany windows anywhere. This tour will visit the five key downtown Tiffany sites, including St. John's Episcopal Church, with its famous "St. John's Vision" window (1899, by Tiffany's Agnes Northrop, all landscape, with about 8,000 pieces of glass in it), the Bush Memorial Center at Russell Sage College (three Tiffany windows and many others similar in style in an 1830s Greek Revival church building), the Troy Public Library, with its well-known specially-commissioned "Aldus Window," St. Paul's Episcopal Church, with an extremely rare entire interior designed by Tiffany, and St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, with over forty Tiffany windows in a single building.
This tour will be lead by The Hudson Mohawk Gateway.
