Why Live in New York

In contrast with New York City’s urban atmosphere, the vast majority of the state is

dominated by farms, forests, rivers, mountains, and lakes. New York’s Adirondack Park

is the largest state park in the United States. It is larger than the Yellowstone,

Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier and Olympic National Parks combined. New York

established the first state park in the United States at Niagara Falls in 1885. Niagara

Falls, on the Niagara River as it flows from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario, is a popular

attraction.

The Hudson River begins at Lake Tear of the Clouds and flows south through the

eastern part of the state without draining Lakes George or Champlain. Lake George

empties at its north end into Lake Champlain, whose northern end extends into

Canada, where it drains into the Richelieu and then the Saint Lawrence Rivers. Four of

New York City’s five boroughs are on three islands at the mouth of the Hudson River:

Manhattan Island; Staten Island; and Long Island, which contains Brooklyn and

Queens on its western end.

Upstate and downstate are often used informally to distinguish New York City or its

greater metropolitan area from the rest of New York State. The placement of a

boundary between the two is a matter of great contention. Unofficial and loosely

defined regions of Upstate New York include the Southern Tier, which often includes the

counties along the border with Pennsylvania, and the North Country, which can mean

anything from the strip along the Canadian border to everything north of the Mohawk

River.
