New York

New York State is a large state with it's capital in Albany but it's cultural and financial center in New York City, a premier city with a population of close to ten million people making it the largest city in the world. In the Northwest, New York has former industrial cities such as Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse, all of which were initially centered on the Erie Canal which provided access to the Great Lakes. These cities have mostly recovered from the migration of industrial jobs overseas.

NYC is surrounded by some of the oldest and most developed suburbs in the country including Levittown, the so-called first post-war suburb in the U.S., and Westchester, each with large populations and well connected to NYC with an extensive public transportation system and a subway service to Manhattan and the outer boroughs.
