New York
from Space

(43º0'0"N 75º0'0"W)

New York, known as the Empire State, joined the Union on July 26, 1788 as the 11th state.

New York, in the Middle Atlantic Division of the Northeast Region, is bordered on the north by Lake Ontario and Canada, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Connecticut to the east, the Atlantic Ocean to the east and southern tip, and New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the west.



Many first-time visitors heading toward New York State smugly assume they know exatly what's there: New York City and, up the road a piece, Niagara Falls.

...

Only a few miles off the highways smiles a face of New York that often goes unseen. Look for this unspoiled face along the clean beaches of Long Island. See it in the glass-clear waters of Lake George or the fish-filled deeps of the glacier-cut Finger Lakes. Find it in the wine region around Hammondsport or the tradition-rich bastion of West Point. Or atop the forested peaks of the Adirondacks, once grand as the Rockies, now deeply eroded but still boasting the highest skiing peak in the East – 3,780-foot Whiteface Mountain. Wander among the spectacular Thousand Islands, all 1,870 of them – and side-trip to the St. Lawrence Seaway to drive your car under a ship! New York is a feast of such surprises.

The Adirondacks of New York State are the southern extention of the Laurentain Mountain range of Canada and form the drainage divide between the Hudson River watershed and the St. Lawrence River/Great Lakes watershed.

The Adirondacks are bordered on the east by Lake Champlain and Lake George, which separate them from the Green Mountains in Vermont. Author James Fenimore Cooper set part of his novel The Last of the Mohicans in the Adirondacks.

The Catskill Mountains from the Eastern Shore of the Hudson, Giclee Print

The Catskill Mountains, the highest part of the Allegheny Plateau, is west of the Hudson River. The name was originally spelled “Kaatskil” by the first Dutch settlers. From the same Dutch tradition comes the surname of Knickerbocker, which author Washington Irving used in his 1809 History of New York, and evolved to “knickers” describing a style of pants worn by the Dutch settlers that buckled beneath knees.

(40º42'11"N 74º01'36"W)

The 315 mile long Hudson River begins in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York State and flows south through the eastern part of the state before its mouth forms the border between New Jersey and New York and empties into Upper New York Bay.

The lower portion of the Hudson is a tidal estuary; the Erie Canal was built from Albany to Buffalo on Lake Erie and opened the eastern seaboard with the Great Lakes.

Now named after explorer Henry Hudson, the Iroquois called the river Muh-he-kun-ne-tuk, the Great Mohegan; it was also know as the Mauritius, “River of Mountains”, and North River.

The Palisades are a line of steep cliffs ranging in height between 350-550 ft., on the west side (NJ) of the lower Hudson River, near NYC.

The Sugar Maple is one of the most important trees and beautiful trees. Along with the Black Maple, it is the major source of sap for making maple syrup, and its wood is desired in furniture and flooring. While the Sugar Maple is easy to transplant, and fairly fast growing, it doesn't like its roots compacted and is not tolerant of pollution.
