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.

Price reduction on this versatile horse facility has it all for launching your own equine business. Retiring owners operated a Premier Accredited PATH International therapeutic riding center for 12 years. They have moved and need to sell. Woods surround this beautiful 37 Acre property making it very secluded. Yet, it is only three miles from town and not far from fishing, trails all kinds of outdoor sports in the nearby St. Lawrence Seaway, Adirondacks and Finger Lakes. Homeowners are relocating and must sell.

Early American Style Home Impeccably Restored & Lovingly Cared For On 133 Acres

Malone, Franklin County, New York

This iconic Early American-style home has been impeccably restored and lovingly cared for by the same family for decades. They traveled to many historic places for guidance before beginning restoration. Many will recognize classic architectural similarities from Winterthur, DE; Mount Vernon and Jamestown, VA; Sturbridge, MA; and Shelburne, VT. The connoisseur of Early American architecture will be impressed by their attention to detail. Situated on 133 mostly level acres, you will have plenty of room to roam. Dip your toes in the pond or feed the koi. Hunt the fields or ski the woodland paths. The gardener will love the raised vegetable beds, berry patches and heated shed for starting seedlings. The Master woodworker will be thrilled by the fully appointed workshop in the Carriage House, replete with half bath. The upstairs could easily be converted into living space for guests. There are meadows suited for horses. Walking paths crisscross the woods. They are especially enjoyable in winter when snow blankets the ground and x-country skiing seems to be the thing to do. Or ice skate on the pond which sits close to the home. Special sitting areas overlooking it afford idyllic views that change with the seasons. No light pollution here. Over the years the sellers have cultivated beautiful perennials in plots scattered around the grounds that are a delight to the senses. There are magnificent old oak trees, sugar maples, and sweet smelling lilacs and honeysuckle. Pear and cherry trees, heirloom apples, blackberries, and blueberries provide an ever changing bounty for your table. As nice as the grounds are, the home and Carriage House are the main attraction. The original brick house is circa 1840. The addition was added in 1989 after years of planning. The owners essentially rebuilt everything. They took great pains to replicate the style and craftsmanship they discovered in their travels- even down to the same square-style nails used in the original build. The walls were removed and the home and attic were insulated to modern standards so heating, even in winter, is surprisingly affordable. There are four bedrooms. The Master Suite is in the newer section of the home and is private from the rest of the house. It features wide cherry floorboards, a wonderful Rumford fireplace, en suite bath with white marble floors and walls, a jetted steeping tub and an oversized shower. The other three bedrooms all have either Cherry or wide pine flooring and share a full bath that has rare marble flooring called Vermont Verde. The main living area is the real charmer. It has plenty of spaces to find quiet comfort and even solitude if that is what you want. In one of the living rooms is an antique wood stove (patented in 1844) that is as functional as it is beautiful. At the other end of the house is another living room which features another Rumford fireplace. The country kitchen features butcher block style counter tops and a center island handy for food prep and extra storage. It is just off of the dining area so it's a cinch to prepare meals while still being able to interact with your guests. From here you can gaze out over the flowers and gardens to the pond and watch the native wildlife. There are two basements: one under the original part of the home and another under the new. Both are nicely finished, one with a half bath. The owner uses it for her sewing room but it is suitable for living space or storage. There is even a Bilco door to the outside for bringing in those larger items normally stored indoors in winter months. The Carriage House features a huge amount of storage space and a half bath, but the gem is the woodworking shop. It really has to be seen to be appreciated. Upstairs could be finished off as additional living space for family or friends. This is truly a home where you can build your own family traditions and lasting memories.
