New York State Famous for making a lasting impression. Whether you’re discovering the Hudson Valley’s magnificent mansions, historic lighthouses on Long Island or the awe-inspiring falls at Niagara; whether you’re diving for treasures in the clear waters of the St. Lawrence, fly fishing in a Catskills river, studying grapes at an award-winning Finger Lakes winery, exploring world famous sites in New York City, visiting the capital city of Albany or the charming town of Saratoga, enjoying the solitude of the Adirondacks, discovering fascinating historical attractions in Central New York or listening to an inspirational speaker at Chautauqua Institution, you’ll know you’re part of something special. No matter the whim, no matter the season, you’ll always find another reason to say, “I Love New York!” St. Law rence River

New York City u 31


N

ew York City is one of the world’s most dynamic destinations—home to Broadway theater, renowned museums like the Met Fifth Avenue, legendary venues like Lincoln Center, landmark retailers like Century 21, several professional sports teams, hundreds of parks, thousands of restaurants and a nonstop calendar of events.

The City comprises five unique boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each has its claims to fame—like Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens and Yankees baseball in the Bronx—and every neighborhood offers a particular local flavor.

From ubiquitous taxi and 24-hour public transportation to breathtaking harbor cruises, NYC provides no shortage of ways to get around. But some of the best exploring is done on foot, where the energy of street life can be exhilarating. Top Photo: Lincoln Center Photo Courtesy of: NYC& Co. Photo credit: Kate Glicksberg

Finger Lakes Region

We have a different sort of high rise here, as the landscape of concrete and steel and glass has been replaced by rolling hills, lush valleys, and all sorts of shimmering waterways. Once you've arrived, you can breath again. You can take your time. But a slower pace doesn't have to come at the cost of finer things, like world-class art, awardwinning wine, exceptional food. Oddly enough, it offers more of a chance, not only to savor those very things, but to create them.
