What makes Albany, NY a cool place to live? I recently accepted a job that's going to take me there in a few months, and I must admit, I know next to nothing about the place.

What's it like there in terms of food, music, culture, weather, etc?
What can one do in Albany? Can one take a train to New York City, Boston, Montreal, anywhere else that's cool? How much would that cost?
Is it scenic? Are there lots of parks? Camping? Mountains? Rivers? Lakes?
What's the traffic like? Is there a lot of crime?
Any information, no matter how random or miniscule, would be appreciated. I am trying to get excited about my move, but I know nothing about this place.
