The Empire State Plaza boasts over 25 years of craft show history and Northeast Show Promoters is pleased to be a part of this tradition. With over 10,000 state employees working in the complex, these shows provide an excellent selling opportunity for the crafter. However, these folks have learned to look for quality craftsmanship and have become selective buyers. The Concourse is known as the quarter-mile "Main Street" of the Empire Plaza which stretches from the Capitol to the Cultural Education Center and the New York State Museum. Shops, restaurants, and a collection of contemporary art line the Concourse.
