Cities in State of New York

The state of New York is in the Northeastern region of the United States of America. It is important to distinguish between New York State and New York city, which is only a part of the state. The state has sixty-two cities located in counties. The largest and most populous city is, of course, New York, whereas the least populous is Sherrill, in the county of Oneida.


Some of the most famous cities throughout the state are Hudson, in the county of Columbia, Syracuse, in Onondaga, Niagara Falls, Middleton, in Orange county, and New York.


Regarding Hudson, which was named after the river, you can visit there the FASNY (Firemen’s Association of State of New York) Museum of Firefighting. In Syracuse you can visit different convention sites, and don’t forget the annual Great New York State Fair, which hosts a mixture of technology, entertainment and agriculture. Niagara Falls is a city in Niagara county which goes across the river with the same name. The waterfalls, which spread from New York to Ontario, in Canada, form the highest flow rate of any other waterfall in the world. If you are going on a visit you can’t miss that incredible show. Talking about Middleton, this place has the charm of the older United States. You can visit there the historic Paramount Theater or the first congregational church. As a curiosity, Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of the USA are still active in Middleton. And finally, we are going to talk about New York city. Divided into five boroughs (Queens, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Staten Island) it has a great importance in finances, art, fashion, technology, entertainment, and many other fields. It is the most densely populated city in the United States, and not only that; it is also the most linguistically diverse city in the world, with more than 800 language spoken there. Due to the immigration it has been receiving since the 19th century, as well as for the development it began to achieve, New York has been a centre of culture and a referent for the world.
