The state of New York is famous all over the world due to the city of the same name. However, the state has a lot more to offer than just the ‘Big Apple’. ‘The Empire State’ is rich in natural wonders, and is of great importance to the country’s history due to the huge number of migrants that have passed through its ports since the early 19th century. Over 10 million people have arrived at New York immigration ports seeking a better life and to make their American dreams come true. Still today, New York is one of the most diverse states in the country and a cultural melting pot.
