The Empire State is home to the nation’s largest population center, New York City, beautiful rural scenery, historic sites, and internationally recognized landmarks. Many people visit New York City because of all it has to offer, but its attractions and activities also make it an ideal place to look at real estate and homes for sale. Many of the buildings and landmarks in New York are known throughout the world, including the Empire State Building, a US National Historic Landmark and for many years the tallest building in the world. Its observation deck, outdoor promenades, and glass enclosure is frequented by those who want the best possible view of this magnificent city. In direct contrast, rural New York State is great for relaxation and calmness, offering sprawling fields, friendly residents, the state capital of Albany, and wide open spaces. As you can see New York real estate has much to offer in many different lifestyles.
