About New York


It is the nation's third populous state and ranks as the 27th largest state by size.

New York is often referred to as New York State to distinguish it from New York City, with a population of over 8,000,000 people, is the most populous city in the United States. Both state and city were named for the 17th

century Duke of York, James Stuart, future James II and VII from England and Scotland.

In contrast with New York's urban atmosphere, the vast majority of the state is dominated by farms, forests, rivers, mountains, and lakes. New York's Adirondack Park is the largest state park in the United States. It is larger than the Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier and Olympic National Parks combined. New York established the first state park in the United States at Niagara Falls in 1885. Today the state has 178 State Parks.

Upstate New York and Downstate New York are often used informally to distinguish New York City or its greater metropolitan area from the rest of New York state. The placement of a boundary between the two is a matter of great contention. Unofficial and loosely defined regions of Upstate New York include the Southern Tier which often includes the counties along the border with Pennsylvania, and the North Country which can mean anything from the strip along the Canadian border to everything north of the Mohawk River.


Weather in New York is heavily influenced by two continental air masses: a warm, humid one from the southwest and a cold, dry one from the northwest.

The winters are long and cold in the Plateau Divisions of the state. The summer climate is cool in the Adirondacks, Catskills and higher elevations of the Southern Plateau.

The New York City / Long Island area and lower portions of the Hudson Valley have rather warm summers by comparison, with some periods of high, uncomfortable humidity. The remainder of New York State enjoys pleasantly warm summers, marred by only occasional, brief intervals of sultry conditions.

The New York horse industry is valued at $1.4 billion. The national industry has a $2.4 billion impact on the New York economy when the multiplier effect of spending by industry suppliers and employees is taken into account. 152,000 New Yorkers are part of the equine life inNew York, either as horse owners, service providers, employees or volunteers. The New York horse industry directly provides 12,700 full-time (FTE) jobs. Spending by suppliers and employees (in New York and other states) generates additional jobs in New York for a total employment impact of 35,200. Over 70% of the 202,000 horses in New York are involved in showing and recreation.

"Horse Dream" property situated in the Adirondack Foothill Region

Malone, Franklin County, New York

There are very few large acreage properties of this size with "newer" home construction in our area. Fewer still with this level of privacy and also convenient to Village services. Please note, one of the owners is a licensed NYS Real Estate Associate Broker. A 3% co-broke is available to another agency. The listing price includes a Bobcat CT225 tractor w/ plow & snowblower as well as most furnishings in the separate guest cottage. 123 Ac "Deer View" is situated in the Adirondack Foothills Region. It is accessed via a 1/2 mile private driveway with underground power. There are two homes (main house and cottage), 1/2 mile of brook frontage, 4 small pastures, a covered bridge, small pond and miles of woodland trails lined with stone walls. The main entrance to a large State land preserve (over 12,000 acres) open to equestrian trail riders, is only 6 miles away. Another access point with a 5 mile loop is much closer. (More details may be found in horse features section). Here one can also mountain bike, swim, hunt & fish. "Deer View" is ideal as a family compound for horse enthusiasts. All that is needed is a barn and fencing for our property to become a full-fledged horse compound with on-site trail riding. We never got quite that far. This property is made for horses, not just deer & turkeys! That was our dream but work and life got in the way. OUR STORY: We are down-scaling for our retirement phase of life. "Deer View" took over 20 yrs of sweat equity to become what it is today. We re-claimed the farm & pasture lands from the early 1800's settlement and cleared the abandoned trails & stone walls. "Deer View" could go even further under the enthusiastic stewardship of new younger owners or as a family effort. We have had a good life here, lots of fun experiences and memories. Our property has kept us in good shape but now we want to experience a life of travel, so it is time to pass the torch! This is a real playground with several additional hobby farm uses. See Lot features below for more details. The beautiful cottage (second living structure) with private drive is currently utilized by guests as a short term vacation rental. To view more cottage photos it would be best to go to https://www.vrbo.com/1494316?unitId=2053014 We are situated 6 miles west of the Village of Malone, 11 miles from the southerly boundary of the immense Adirondack Park Preserve and 20 miles from the US/Canadian border. The immediate neighborhood is very rural, much surrounding land use is pasture or hay field. Malone Village is the closest major population center, population is under 6,000. Most essential services can be found here as well as equine supply shopping. Malone Village is known for its famous Trent Jones designed 36 hole golf course which Babe Ruth once visited. (Of course, Gangster Dutch Shultz also visited the course during his 1935 trial at the Franklin Cty Courthouse in Malone Village). Near this golf course is the Titus Mt. Ski Center with 27 downhill trails. The area is within 60 -75 minutes of the high peaks Adirondack tourist villages of Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. The Village of Potsdam (site of SUNY) and the Village of Massena are located appx 45 minutes to the west. The largest population center is the City of Plattsburgh (less than 20,000) another SUNY site, within 75 minutes. For recreational water access, this property is within a 20-30 minute drive from what we feel is some of the best fishing, canoeing and kayaking in the Adirondacks on Deer River Flow and Horseshoe Pond. Other nearby lakes include Mt View and Indian Lake. A little further south brings you to the beautiful NYS Lake Meacham Beach and the Osgood River flow. If you seek more cultural international traveling, we are within 2 hours driving time to both Montreal and Ottawa and less than 1 hour from Cornwall, Canada.
