Travel Maps of New York
New York City & New York City Neighborhoods
This dazzling, shape-shifting metropolis belongs more to the world than it does to the state. Movies have convinced most people that New York equals Manhattan, but the other boroughs, particularly Brooklyn and Queens, are worth a visit.
This thin ribbon of land east of the City is home to popular beaches that stretch for miles along its southern coast. The Hamptons is the summer playground of the rich and famous while other seaside villages are filled with posh restaurants, inns, and B&Bs.
The Hudson Valley and the Catskills
North of the City, the Hudson Valley is rich with historical, cultural, and scenic sites, including sumptuous Hudson River estates, world-class art and history museums, Revolutionary War sites, and plenty of farmto- table restaurants, resorts, and B&Bs.
The Capital-Saratoga Region
Filled with tales of political intrigue, both historical and contemporary, the capital city of Albany is also host to the ambitious Empire State Plaza, as well as the Albany Institute of History & Art and the New York State Museum. This region is also famous for Victorian-era Saratoga Springs, host to the country’s finest horse racing and home to natural springs.
North of Saratoga sprawls Adirondack Park, the East’s greatest wilderness. Summer vacationers flock to its vast forests, rugged peaks, gleaming lakes and ponds, and rushing rivers and streams.
The Finger Lakes and the Thousand Islands-Seaway
The long, narrow Finger Lakes are flanked by vineyards, stately 19th-century towns, and a number of historical landmarks, many related to civil rights and women’s history. Northward are the isolated Thousand Islands, scattered over the St. Lawrence River.
Buffalo and the Niagara Region
Sublime Niagara Falls is the state’s second most popular tourist attraction (after New York City). The Erie Canal winds its way west through tiny canal towns. Western New York is also home to Buffalo, the state’s second largest city, once known for its steel industry. Today, it boasts robust arts and preservation movements.
