I can tell whoever made this quiz is from "upstate" New York. Which is the entire state except NYC. I'm so sick of having to say I'm from "New-York-Not-The-City" Great quiz thanks!

the Adirondaks rival any other mountain region in the country for beauty. I am surprised that the region was never made a national park, but it does have state park protection.

Missed Manhattan because I got Long Island and Staten Island, and then fixated on answers with "Island" in the name. Roosevelt Governor's What else could there be? Didn't know IBM was based in New York.

Is it just me, or as these states quizzes easier than the country quizzes (for Americans at least)? Although the early country quizzes were also not too bad, so it might get more difficult with smaller, less notable states.

As I European I find them way harder than the countries quizzes. I only got 9 on this one and most of the ones I didn’t get does not even ring a bell. There is no chance I will ever get the badge without starting to cheat

Wasn't Yorkville the battle that turned the war around? At least according to Hamilton, where most people now get their rev war history from...

The battle of Yorktown was the last major battle in the war, but the song "Yorktown" does cover a significant amount of the second half of the war, since Hamilton's personal issues took up most of the first act.
