Although the New York state is inextricably linked with New York City in many people’s minds, the state has a wide range of geographic and climatic conditions. Its climate is a humid continental one, but it is changing due to man-made increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide. It’s home to large mammals such as black bears, bobcats and moose, plus smaller mammals like weasels, raccoons and skunks.

New York state’s economy ranks among the largest in the world and accounts for a significant portion of the gross domestic product of the United States.
