Getting to Christ the King:

From Albany , head west on Western Avenue, past the entrance to Crossgates Mall. After the mall entrance, you will see your first of two silver diners on the right. Continue a mile plus further on Western. When you see the second silver diner on the right, make an immediate left, which is Sumter Avenue. Christ the King is at the end of the block on Sumter.

If you miss Sumter Avenue, you can take either of the next two lefts. All will lead you to the Church which is just a block or so off of Western Avenue. You have gone too far if you cross Route 155.
