One of the original 13 colonies, the state of New York has an estimated 19.85 million residents, with New York City making up 40% of the state’s population. For those who don’t live in New York or anywhere near it, New York City is the only thing that comes to mind when they think of the state.

The rest of the country tends to forget that there are countless other cities in the area and that the state is bigger than just one city.
