New York


For some people, “New York” means the City, not the state. They are missing out on Niagara Falls, beaches like Montauk, the resorts of the Catskills, and the wineries and orchards of Upstate New York.

New York City has some of the cleanest drinking water in the world, thanks to the pristine land covering the aquifers of Upstate New York. 60% of the state’s population lives north of the Big Apple, in cities and towns, and rural communities.

Matador has covered writing, surfing, partying, and going to school in New York.
