Albany Mayor Erastus Corning 2nd failed in the 1930s when, as a state senator, he advocated regionalism for the Hudson River Valley. Gov. Nelson Rockefeller failed with regionalism in the Hudson River Valley when he created the Hudson River Valley Commission in the 1960s. The Rockefeller Institute tried and failed to establish a regional plan for the Capital Region in the 1990s.
