Just because you're a notorius robber baron doesn't mean you aren't also a devoted father and family man. The home of Jay Gould is the finest example of neo-Gothic architecture in America.
Feel the magic alongside America's first river, the Hudson. Spirits past and present (and distilled!) roam the shores, recalling early days of the republic and highlighting the dynamic life of today.
Begun as a Revolutionary War fortress, the key to the Hudson, this promontory now is home to the Long Grey Line and America's military tradition.
See how it's done, admire amazing examples, or try your own hand at making the stuff. CMoG is better than you remember it, and if you've never been you'll be amazed!
Commune with your favorite comedian or try your own bit of stand-up. There's something for everyone at the National Comedy Center in Jamestown.
Haven't visited New York's Adirondack mountains yet? No worries, Yorkers didn't come here either for the first 100 years of the state's existence. But don't wait any longer. Visit the site of the Miracle on Ice, see the view that greets a ski jumper (above), take a lake cruise with lunch from a CIA grad, tour one of the Great Camps of yore, or take a train ride you won't soon forget. Adirondack State Park at more than twice the size of Yellowstone will open your eyes.

This is Singer Castle on Dark Island.
Just one of the many wonders and wonderful stories from the fabled vacation-land and boating heaven of the 1000 Islands.
