About the City of Troy:

Incorporated in 1816, the City of Troy is the seat of Rensselaer County government and the county’s largest municipality by population. Situated on the eastern bank of the Hudson River, the City boasts seven miles of waterfront, a largely-preserved historic downtown, diverse neighborhoods, and several major colleges and universities. Troy’s history as the nation’s largest manufacturer of detachable cuffs and collars earned the City’s nickname “the Collar City.” A former steel & iron manufacturing powerhouse of the 19th and early 20th century, the City is now home to a growing hub of tech, video game development, restaurants, and retail.
