History and Culture

New York became a state July 26, 1788. New York was the place of many battles in The Revolutionary War including The Battle of Saratoga arguably the most decisive battle in the war was fought in New York. New York became a Melting Pot of different cultures from other countries escaping their oppressing lives finding haven in New York. It is home to New York City. The people in New York City keep to themselves for the most part but many street performers will be very friendly and they dress up in costumes. And for the more country areas of the state the people are very friendly and see it as impolite to talk about religion unlike the people in the city. Catholics make up the main religion of New York.

Subculture New York City Chinatown

New York City is a place where many cultures gather and mix and they have made their own form of culture including bits and pieces of each other but the main part being whatever they had originally. Like Chinatown will have mostly Chinese culture but will still have american influence and other cultures of people that have moved there.

Weather and Geography

The best time to visit New York is in May or October or anytime in between because it is for the most part warm and sunny. But if you like the snow, go to Buffalo, because of the lake effect of Lake Erie they get more snowfall than Anchorage in Alaska. When packing you should bring some warm clothes and also some cooler weather clothes depending on where you are going and to be prepared for rain and things of that nature. The geography of New York is very diverse with lakes, mountains, oceans and big cities so whatever you want to see, you can see in New York.
