Moving to New York?

You’ve decided to make New York State your new home? Excellent choice! While the name “New York” might immediately call up images of New York City, there’s so much more to love in the Empire State. The Big Apple might command most of the attention (and 40% of the population), but the rest of New York offers plenty of opportunities for adventure and even small town living.

Even outside the confines of the City, New York offers up a number of delights for foodies and wine lovers. Be sure to try Adirondack Bear Paw ice cream! You’ll find quaint university towns and bustling cities throughout New York State. Be sure to brush up on your hockey -- it’s something of a state obsession.
New York State has four distinct seasons, but really? It’s all about Fall. Rural New York offers some of the best foliage to be found anywhere in the United States. And while the winters can be cold and snowy -- Buffalo and Syracuse can attest! -- the mild summers more than make up for it.
