The state of New York is located in the northeastern region of the United States. New York is bordered by Lake Erie and Lake Ontario on the west; the provinces of Ontario and Quebec in Canada on the north; the states of Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east; and the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south.
This state encompasses 54,556 square miles, which are divided into sixty-two counties. New York is the twenty-seventh largest state in the United States. The capital of New York is Albany. The largest city is New York City, which is currently the most populous city in the United States. Other large cities in New York include Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Utica, Yonkers, and Mount Vernon.Based on the 2010 census, the state's population was 19,378,102.
The vast majority of the state of New York is made up of forests, rivers, lakes, mountains, and farms. The major industries include finance, communications, international trade, publishing, fashion, farming, and tourism.
Both the state of New York and the city of New York were named for the seventeenth century Duke of York, James Stuart. This area was originally inhabited by the Native American tribes of Algonquian, Iroquois, and Lenape. It was claimed by Henry Hudson in 1609 for Dutch settlers, and they formed the colony of New Netherland, which was taken over by the British in 1664. About a third of the Revolutionary War battles took place in this state. In 1788, New York became the eleventh U.S. state.
Tourist attractions in New York include Ellis Island, the main facility for immigrants entering the United States who arrived between 1892 and 1954.

A couple of years ago, I visited New York city for the first time. It is the most amazing and exiting city Iโ€™ve never visited in the United States. It is multicultural city, several languages are spoken there with a population coming from different countries, which means that immigration is a very important social aspect in this city. The only thing I dislike was the property of subway, it smells like piss and there are many rats.

Hi teacher,


In below paragraph, it is said 'on the west' and 'on the north' but why not different for 'on the east' and 'on the south'?


The state of New York is located in the northeastern region of the United States. New York is bordered by Lake Erie and Lake Ontario on the west; the provinces of Ontario and Quebec in Canada on the north; the states of Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east; and the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south.


Second, why we are not using 'made from' in the sentence 'The vast majority of the state of New York is made up of .....' ?


Third, why not using 'named from' in 'Both the state of New York and the city of New York were named for ....' ?


Thank you

Hi Fabiano,


In this case, "taken over" means that New York was a Dutch settlement, but then it became a British settlement. The British took control of the area, or "took it over."


Hope that helps!
