Coeymans is a town in Albany County, New York, United States. The population was 7,418 at the 2010 census. The town is named after an early settler, who was the patent-holder for the area. The town is in the southeast part of the county, south of Albany, New York.

The Powell & Minnock Brick Yard, just north of the Hamlet on Rt. 144, was used as the assembly site for a new swing span for the 145th Street Bridge in 2006. The site was chosen because of a lack of space closer to the city.

History

Barent Pieteres Koijemans first arrived in 1639 from Holland. He became an apprentice at a mill owned by the Van Rensselaers.[1] He purchased the land and obtained a patent in 1673.[2]

Coeymans was formed from part of the town of Watervliet in 1791. In 1815, part of the town was used to make the new town of Westerlo.

The Fletcher Blaisdell Farm Complex, Coeymans School, Ariaanje Coeymans House, Coeymans-Bronck Stone House, Mull House and Cemetery, Tobias Ten Eyck House and Cemeteries, and Cornelius and Agnietje Van Derzee House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
