A pejorative nickname for the capital of New York State, Albany. So called because of its diminutive size, especially compared to New York City.

This spelling is preferred over smalbany, since it preserves the rhyme with 'small' and avoids the pronunciation AL-bany (which is, as far as most New Yorker's are concerned, a city in southern Georgia).
"So, you're from upstate? Where? Syracuse? Buffalo?"
"Ha, I wish! Nah, I grew up in Smallbany, where the only thing to do at night is drive to another city."
