Prior to the construction of the Leo W. O’Brien Federal Building on the corner of Clinton Avenue and North Pearl Street in downtown Albany in 1974, the Albany MEPS was located in the old Post Office building on Broadway with the Selective Service headquarters. The old Post Office building housed the Albany Armed Forces Entrance Examination Station (AFEES) for many years, before it was acquired by the State University of New York. The Albany MEPS has occupied the second floor of the Federal Building continuously for 34 years. The current facility is comprised of the Federal building’s entire second floor and a portion of the third floor.
