Troy is a city located on the eastern bank of the Hudson River in Rensselaer County, New York. The Hudson estuary stretches 153 miles from Troy to New York Harbor, nearly half the river's 315 mile course between Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondacks and the Battery at the tip of Manhattan. The estuary feels the ocean's tidal pulse all the way to Troy. Troy is known as the home of "Uncle Sam," the goateed, patriotic figure that grew to symbolize the United States government. Troy is a city in Rensselaer County, New York, located on the western edge of Rensselaer County and on the eastern bank of the Hudson River.
