Learning About the U.S. State of New York

Back in the 1660s when the English took over the colony was named New York after the Duke of York. It became known as the Empire State. The state includes everything from skyscrapers in Manhattan to rivers, mountains, and lakes in upstate New York. Diversity and contrast, that’s New York. The thunderous and spectacular Niagara Falls, the rugged mountains of the Adirondacks, the enchanting Catskills, all the lakes great and small, the Hudson River, and Fire Island — the variety and range of natural amenities is awesome!  Today, New York has the third largest population (after California and Texas), and remains the financial center of the country. The state flower is the rose, and the capital is Albany.
