  17. 17. Evaluation Since New York has amazing things to see, a lot of history, and even mountains, I think that there’s something for everyone, so it’s a great place to visit, and I think it would be cool to live there! If you went to New York city, the setting would be very modern and crazy, opposed to towns outside of New York City where there might be more farmlands, lakes, and more historical things to see like the Erie Canal, which is located west of the Hudson River; there’s even ski resorts, almost all in Central Leatherstocking and the Greater Niagra. So overall, I think that New York would be a great place to visit because there’s so many things to do.
