Local History Books on New York

New York is easily one of the most famous states in the entire union and it’s really not hard to see why. It’s a cultural mecca in the eyes of the world, to say the very least, thanks in great part to the iconic New York City. It was also the site of the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival, the very first chess tournament, and the founding of multiple iconic educational institutions. It’s the setting of multiple American legends known all over the world, as well, including the story of Rip van Winkle.

Even so, you can’t really say you know what New York is all about until you’ve explored it thoroughly through regional interest literature.
