Nature in New York State

The state of New York is located in the Northeast of the United States and belongs to the mid-Atlantic states of the United States. The territory of the state of New York is 141,300 km 2 (27th in terms of area among the states of the USA).

New York borders Canada in the west and north (and partly the border runs along two of the Great Lakes – Erie and Ontario), with the states of Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut in the east, as well as with New Jersey and Pennsylvania in the south. In the southeast, the state faces the Atlantic Ocean (this is where the city of New York is located) and has a maritime border with the state of Rhode Island.

New York State is based on the US Eastern Time Zone.

There are several major physiographic regions in New York State: the New England Mountains, the Great Appalachian Valley, the Catskill Mountains, the Allegheny Plateau, the Adirondack Mountains, the Great Lakes Lowlands, and Long Island.

Located in the southeast of the state, Long Island is part of the Atlantic Lowlands. The length of the island is about 190 kilometers, and the maximum width is 37 kilometers. The island is almost flat, only in its middle part there are low sandy hills. Long Island is the largest island in the continental states of the United States and is home to two boroughs of New York – Brooklyn and Queens.

Most of the territory of the state of New York is located within the largest mountain system in the eastern United States, the Appalachians. It also includes the mountains of New England, which are located in the eastern part of the state (and in neighboring Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont). In the southeast of the state is located the Hudson Highlands, a plateau with a height of 300 to 520 meters above sea level. To the north, it passes into the Taconic Mountains (up to about 1,000 meters high).

A little to the west, from north to south, the valley of Lake Champlain and the valley of the Hudson River stretch, which are parts of the Great Valley of the Appalachians.

To the west of the Hudson River Valley rise the forested slopes of the Catskill Mountains, which pass into the Pocono Mountains located south of Pennsylvania. The highest mountain in the Catskills, Mount Slide, rises to 1,280 meters above sea level.

Further west, the entire southern part of the state of New York is occupied by the Allegheny Plateau (Allegheny or Allegheny). This is a plateau 600 – 750 meters high, cut by numerous streams and ravines.

In the west of the state, almost flat lowlands stretch along the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River. It is here on the Niagara River, which connects Lakes Erie and Ontario, that the famous Niagara Falls, one of the most popular tourist attractions in the United States, is located.

The Adirondack Mountains are located in northeastern New York State. This is a group of peaks from 370 to 1,500 meters high, and the highest point of the state, Mount Marcy (1629 meters), is also located here.

The Adirondack Mountains are almost completely covered with forests, mostly coniferous and mixed, in which more than fifty species of mammals, more than one hundred and fifty species of birds and many other animals live.

In the Adirondack Mountains is located the eponymous reserve, the largest protected area in the continental United States. The area of ​​the Adirondack Park is about 25,000 km 2, which is more than the area of ​​the state of Vermont or the Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Glacier, Yosemite and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks combined. This reserve was created back in 1885 and has traditionally been one of the most popular holiday destinations in the northeastern United States (up to ten million visitors a year).

On the territory of the Adirondack Park are located the sources of the largest river in the state of New York – the Hudson. This river, which is more than five hundred kilometers long, flows from north to south in the eastern part of the state through the Great Valley between the Taconic and Catskill mountains and flows into the Atlantic Ocean at New York Bay. The headwaters of the Susquehanna (the longest on the East Coast of the United States) and Delaware rivers are also located in the state of New York.

New York State has a humid continental climate. The Atlantic coast has cool, wet winters and hot summers, with average New York temperatures ranging from -3°C to 4°C in January and 21°C to 29°C in July. It is somewhat colder in the interior of the state, so in the state capital, Albany, the temperature in the coldest month, January, usually ranges from -10 ° C to -1 ° C, and in the warmest month, July, from 16 ° C to 28 ° C. The Great Lakes have a great influence on the climate of the western counties of New York State, from which blizzards and snow storms often come in winter.
