New York is the 3rd most populated state in United States but contains the most populated city in the country. NYC has a population pushing over 8 million people and makes up nearly half of the entire population in New York. The amount of people in New York City, along with the overall size, makes walking and subway transport a popular means of travel throughout the city.

It’s this population density that creates the heavy urban atmosphere that so many associate with the state, even though the majority of the state is dominated by farm land, forests, rivers, mountains and lakes. New York is also home to the largest state park in the United States, toppling Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, Glacier, Olympic, and Yosemite combined.
