This Corinthian-style edifice was modeled after the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The famous Esther Hobart Morris Statue stands in front of the building, in honor of the first woman to hold judicial office in modern times.

The State Capitol is closed for a major overhaul. I think it is scheduled to reopen July 2019. I am sure it is worth a visit but cannot properly rate at this time

We walked around this lovely and grand State Capitol that is having major renovations. It has been closed for some time and still will be for awhile. We took photos and noticed the replica Liberty Bell. Too bad the renovations were not complete!

We stopped to look at the capitol, but seeing even the exterior is a challenge with all of the scaffolding and tarps. But if you live a couple of thousand miles away, you make do. The front is still visible, and some of the grounds.
