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.

Historic Catskill Mountain Farm & Estate

Livingston Manor, Sullivan County, New York

WATCH THE VIDEO AT: www.catskillmountianproperty.com HISTORIC ESTATE IN THE GATEWAY TO THE CATSKILL PARK! According to Google Maps, this incredible country home is just 2 hours from GWB! In the heart of the famed Beaverkill Valley, this circa 1845 farmhouse had undergone $500k in recent restorations and enhancements including: Double-sided fireplace; Radiant floors; Custom built kitchen with cherry cabinets/Subzero fridge/granite countertop; Custom designed bathrooms showcased by Carrara marble and Waterworks faucets; Cedar closets; Wine cellar; and SOOOO much more! (see listing specs for more details). The multi-level barn was almost entirely rebuilt a few years ago-and was truly built to last! While preserving and showcasing countless Kinch Family artifacts, the modern touches include a greenhouse/studio, it's own 200 amp service, and a heated tack room to use for storage. This barn also provided the perfect location for a recent country wedding. Nearly 10 acres (WITH MORE AVAILABLE) include open meadows, ancient trees, and immaculate perennial gardens. The miles of stone walls date back to the land grant from Queen Anne in 1709, and continue to provide a picturesque border between you and 100s acres of NY State land that is forever wild. So, you will have the opportunity to access all of the joys of that kind of acerage without concern of a tax bill or future development. The original Kinch Homestead was a thriving dairy farm known for beautiful jersey cows, award winning chickens, pigs, and Nellie and Bill; the team of horses that were used to cut the hay in the fields. Though the sellers have made countless enhancements over the the past 45 years, it has always been with the mission of restoring and preserving the past, while weaving in modern luxuries. For instance, once a cozy piggery, the outdoor sauna is lined with cedar while retaining its original windows to allow for relaxation and appreciation of the stunning setting. The original chicken coop and spring house are also lovingly restored. The heart of Livingston Manor is just a few miles away and prides itself as the birthplace of American fly fishing! This quintessential Catskill village embraces visitors with its high end boutiques, authentic country stores featuring organic produce, eclectic restaurants/cafes and the finest of fine arts and events. Let's just say, Norman Rockwell would feel right at home! Call for your private showing TODAY!
