    "Prior to 1800, at a least eight other buildings and eight other cities have hosted Congress, going back to the First Continental Congress. Since the ratification of the United States Constitution, Congress has only met in two other buildings. The Senate and House of Representatives each have met in various chambers within the U.S. Capitol building, including during expansions and renovations.

    The capital was first located in New York."

    I'm not clear whether you mean the Capitol Building, or like Washington D.C. - but the excerpt has New York in it. It's a bit vague though.
