Bordered by two of the Great Lakes, two Canadian provinces, five U.S. states, the Atlantic Ocean, and anchored by New York City – the State of New York, is frankly, a most spectacular place.

Long the ancestral home of the Algonquin and Iroquois Indians, the English explorer, Henry Hudson, first opened the interior of this promising land to Europeans. In 1625 the Dutch began the settlement of New Amsterdam – eventually renamed New York City by the British.

This land would become one of the Revolutionary War’s main battlegrounds, as over 90 military engagements were fought here. Shortly after the British surrendered at the Battle of Saratoga, New York became the 11th state to ratify the U.S. Constitution.

In addition to America’s premier city, the state is home to rugged mountains and forested national parks, countless lakes, over 40,000 miles of rivers and streams, and a wide variety of sophisticated cities mixed in with small town America.

From Niagara Falls to Long Island, the Empire State of New York bursts with attractions (both natural and man-made), commercial and industrial complexes and cultural institutions – all of which contribute to its recognized reputation around the world.
