New York (state)

Default Banner.jpg

Located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States of America, New York state [1] was one of the original 13 British colonies. Often overshadowed by its eponymous megacity, the state has incredible historical sites throughout the north. Outside of its densely populated southeast corner, New York is largely agricultural. It is a major producer of dairy products (3rd in the nation after California and Wisconsin), is the nation's most prolific grower of cabbage, and has an expanding wine industry.


Some people say that New York has two regions: New York City, and "Upstate", i.e., everything else. In fact New York is a large state with a number of distinct regions.
