36 Columns

The State Education Building in Albany, NY is a massive structure with some notable features. Its claim to fame is the fact it has the longest continuous colonnade in the world at 520 feet. The marble columns along the colonnade are 6 1/2 feet in diameter at the base and are 90 feet tall. I want to know the significance of 36.
