Albany is a very easy city to get around. The exits have letters after the highway number (ex: 9N). You will not miss President Arthur grave. There is a flag pole and there is a angel of sorrow on top of his crypt. The road to the cemetery gate is long. President Arthur's wife Ellen is buried near his big crypt. The seal that you see on the main page is the seal that is on President Arthur's crypt. There are a few homes on the road leading to the gate. You can pick a map of the cemetery up at the main office or you can follow signs that have been put pointing the way to his grave.
