New York is five unique boroughs, each of which is like a separate city with its own history and character. If you have studied everything iconic places up and down, found everything hidden gems, then it's time to go outside the metropolis. World Atlas spoke about the nine most picturesque cities in New York State.

As soon as you leave the metropolitan area, it becomes obvious how picturesque the state's nature is: the Adirondacks, Catskills and Appalachians, the Finger Lakes region, the Hudson Valley. This is not surprising, since New York State has one of the highest forests in the United States. But another attractive aspect that should not be overlooked is the small towns.

Lake Placid, New York

Lake placid

This Adirondack town has twice hosted the Winter Olympics and is home to sporting events ranging from skiing and triathlons to skating and hiking. Lake Placid is located on the southern shore of the lake of the same name and surrounds the much smaller Mirror Lake. Numerous forest walks start from trails in the village, which is known for its wide range of quaint shops and restaurants.

Sleepy Hollow

The town is located in Westchester County 40 kilometers north of New York. He is famous for being the inspiration for Washington Irving's novel The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Nearby are several natural attractions, including Nyack Beach State Park and Rockefeller State Park, as well as historical sites, including the Philipsburg Estate and the cemetery where Irving and other famous figures rest.
