New York Climate & Geography

While New York is best known for its urban atmosphere, especially Manhattan, there are forests, farms, rivers, mountains and lakes that cover most of the state. The state is bordered by New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont.

The climate in New York is categorized as humid continental, however the climate varies from region to region. There are three key climatic areas including the southeastern lowlands, the uplands of the Catskills and Adirondacks and the snow belt along the Great Lakes Plain. The differences in latitude, character of the landscape, and closeness to large bodies of water are what cause these variations.

New York is rich with culture and many American cultural movements first emerged in New York City. New York’s individuality lies in its astonishing mixture of different cultures. A walk amongst the city’s multilingual populace will reveal the diversity of accents and speech patterns.
