new york city Located in the northeast, New York covers over 49,000 square miles.  From the Atlantic coastline and the Hudson River in the southeast to the Finger Lakes in the interior, to Niagara Falls and Lake Ontario in the northwest, and to the Saint Lawrence River to the north, New York State is blessed with abundant rivers and waterways  Albany is the state capital; other notable cities include New York City, Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo.

The capital city of Albany is located in upstate New York, on the west bank of the Hudson River.  Albany is a center of higher education, and much of its economy depends on state government, health care, and high-tech industrial employment.  The University at Albany (SUNY) and several other colleges and universities are located in the Albany area.  In recent decades, much of Albany's downtown and midtown areas have been revitalized.

New York City, the largest metro area in the USA and fourth largest city in the world, lies at the mouth of the Hudson River and includes the island of Manhattan as well as Staten Island and western Long Island.  New York City is a lively economic center with a great arts and culture scene including world-class dining, shopping, museums, theater, symphony, opera, and live music.  There are a number of major league sports teams, including the MLB Yankees and Mets, NBA Knicks and Nets, NFL Giants and Jets, and NHL Rangers.  An extensive public transit system including subways and buses connects the many neighborhoods, boroughs, and districts, of which Manhattan is the financial and commercial core.  Lower Manhattan houses the financial district, while Midtown is the commercial district and home to world-famous Fifth Avenue.  Manhattan's Upper East Side is a residential area for the very wealthy, while the Upper West Side is a residential area favored by working professionals and families.  The many neighborhoods scattered throughout Manhattan include Chinatown, Greenwich, Soho, and Times Square.  The boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx have large industrial areas and are ethnically diverse.  Staten Island is connected to Manhattan by ferry service and to Brooklyn by the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.  La Guardia, JFK, and Newark airports all service the New York City metro area.  New York City is crowded and the cost of living is high, as is crime and socioeconomic disparity.

In northwest New York on Lake Ontario, Rochester is a Great Lakes shipping port with a strong science and technology presence and excellent arts, culture, and educational assets.  It is home to the Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Rochester, as well as the Eastman Kodak Company, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, and GM's hydrogen power research labs.  Rochester is the fourth rainiest city in the U.S., but Lake Ontario offers plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities and the cost of living is low.  Home to Syracuse University, Syracuse is a commercial and transportation center located in north central New York.  Outdoor recreational opportunities exist at Oneida Lake and Lake Ontario to the north.  Syracuse has a harsh winter climate, tying Utica for the greatest annual snowfall in the country, and the economy is on a decline.  Buffalo is located in western New York at the eastern end of Lake Erie, and is New York's second largest city.  Buffalo is a major port and manufacturing center which provides decent shopping as well as recreational and cultural amenities.  The city has a strong community feeling and takes great pride in professional sports.  Niagara Falls is a special attraction, but parts of the city are in various states of decline and winters are extremely cold and snowy.
