New York - New York may immediately bring to mind the metropolitan sophistication of Manhattan. However, the vastness of the “Empire State” also encompasses a thriving agricultural industry, including dairy farming and a number of vineyards in the Finger Lakes and Hudson Valley regions. Northern New York is also home to the 6.1 million acre Adirondack Park, which features over 3,000 lakes and 2,000 miles of hiking trails. In New York City, self storage units secure an abundance of personal possessions, such as furniture, antiques and family heirlooms that would otherwise clutter up small, urban apartments. In the central eastern region around Albany, Saratoga and Schenectady, mini storage units house camping, boating and hiking equipment for use on local rivers, in the nearby Catskill Region and the Erie Canal. The far western region of the state borders on two of the Great Lakes and is home to two of the state’s larger cities. On Lake Erie, mini storage facilities in Buffalo come in handy for housing motor boats, canoes, jet-skis and kayaks. Self storage units in Rochester contain similar water sport equipment for use on Lake Ontario. New York has hundreds of self storage facilities throughout the state.
