CNA Jobs in NY

New York is one of 13 colonial and primitive states. Western and northern New York borders Lake Erie, Ontario, Canada, and Quebec, Canada; New England, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut to the east; the Atlantic Ocean and southeastern New Jersey; and southern Pennsylvania.

Until the 1960s, New York was the nation’s leading state in virtually every demographic, cultural, and economic measure. Its displacement from California since the middle of that decade was due to the tremendous growth that continued on the West Coast, not the sharp decline in New York itself.

Texas overtook New York as the second most populous state in 2000. Nevertheless, New York remains one of the most populous states in the country, and its gross economic output exceeds that of all but a few countries in the world. New York is in a region of contrasts, from the Atlantic coast of Long Island and the skyscrapers of Manhattan through the rivers, mountains, and lakes of New York State to the plains of the Great Lakes region. Thanks to the canals, railroads, and highways, New York is the main gateway to the west of the Mid-Atlantic and New England states, as well as a hub for travel to and from much of the country.

From New York to Albany, Utica, and Syracuse, to Rochester and Buffalo on the Great Lakes, more than four-fifths of New Yorkers live in the city and its suburbs. Compared to New York, New England and the southern colonies had a far greater impact on revolution and stability in the first few decades of the new state, but once the state began to grow, it reached an astonishing rate. The state, and New York, in particular, remains the center of much of the U.S. economy and finances, as well as many formative drivers of American arts and culture, both of which are an important part of national life policy. Yet the overwhelming presence of New York City tends to divide the state socially and politically, creating long-term problems for the city and the state.
