New York. The minute you say those words, everyone thinks of the city. And it’s no wonder – it’s the largest city in America, the most densely populated city in the country, the world’s most economically powerful city, and arguably the center for culture, finance, and media in all the English-speaking countries, if not the globe. The city is home to over 8 million people, nearly half the population of the state, all inside of 302.6 square miles… or roughly .5% of the total area of New York State. It’s no wonder it gets all the attention.
There’s so much more to New York outside of the city though. It is a state with diverse regions, such as the hardy lakefront, snow-covered cities in Buffalo and Syracuse. Or, the extensive parks stretching across the interior, and the wine region of the Hudson Valley. It ranges from rural farming areas to blue-collar towns and cities recovering from the fall of big steel to the Big Apple.
So what does New York have that makes the state as whole such a big draw?
- “Forever wild” thanks to a declaration of Congress in 1894, Adirondack Park in the northern New York state is massive. Also, it’s the oldest state preserve of its type in the country. At 9,375 square miles, it is larger than the state of Vermont. It is larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier, and Olympic National Parks… combined.
- The Catskills, just outside of Poughkeepsie, are New York’s second large national park area, and home to the Shawangunk Mountains. These are considered some of the most challenging and rewarding mountains for rock climbers in the country.
- Chosen as the “Most Fun” Town in America, Corning is known often by a different nickname – America’s Crystal City. It has historically been the leader in all things glass. From making some of the first light bulbs for Thomas Edison to the development of Corningware and its recognizable light blue. “Cornflower” decoration, modern Gorilla Glass, and fiber optics; Corning is at the center of it all. Check out the yearly GlassFest, or the glass museum open year-round!
- Oneida is also home to Cross Island Chapel – “The World’s Smallest Church.” Only 28 square feet, it has room for two, and take up the entirety of tiny Cross Island, in the center of a pond,
- You don’t order Buffalo Wings in Buffalo. They just call them “wings” there. They still argue about who invented them too – was it the Anchor Bar, or Duff’s Famous, or John Young? Either way, try them out, or another Buffalo original, Beef on Weck. Wash it down with one of the many craft brews from Buffalo’s burgeoning craft scene.
Enclosed Auto Transport to New York
New York gets it from both sides when it comes to weather. The southeastern part of the state, from the tip of Long Island into the Hudson Valley, can often bear the brunt of nor’easters working their way down the coast. Sometimes it can get the disastrous effects of tropical storms and hurricanes heading north as well, as Hurricane Sandy hammered the state. Out west, lake effect snow constantly blankets the cities of Buffalo, Syracuse, and Rochester – average yearly snowfall in Buffalo is just under 100 inches per year, while western portions of the Adirondack range can see up to nearly 200 inches! Only the south-central portion of the state is protected, but even then, it receives around two feet of snow and plenty of rain throughout the average year.
The safest way to transport your car to New York is within an enclosed auto transport. There are two options for shipping your car via enclosed auto transport:
- Soft-Sided Enclosed Auto Transport – First, the heavy canvas covering the carriers protects your car from wind-blown debris, rain, sleet, snow, and other elements.
- Hard-Sided Enclosed Auto Transport – In addition to the advantages provided by soft-sided carriers, hard-sided carriers offer protection for your car in the unlikely event your car is exposed to possible damage during transportation.
Open Auto Transport to New York
Thinking about using open auto transport for your New York car transport needs? Open carriers are the exact same double-decker car carriers the dealerships use. Your vehicle will be secured with state-of-the-art equipment, and it will arrive at its destination within seven days of departure. Open auto transport is a secure and affordable way of shipping your car, protecting your vehicle from road vibration, excess mileage, and more.
Lowboy Carriers to New York
Hauling construction equipment through New York City is a straight-up nightmare. Even in the less dense regions such as Albany and Poughkeepsie, it’s far from easy – and those are the regions that are seeing more and more development as biotech and computer firms are moving into city-adjacent areas. That’s why many New York construction teams rely on an auto transport company for a helping hand.
