Western Massachusetts features urban area (the knowledge corridor) along the Connecticut River and a mix of college towns and rural areas. Many of Massachusetts’ towns, cities, and counties have names identical to ones in England. Massachusetts is the most populous of the six New England states. Massachusetts has played a significant historical, cultural, and commercial role in American history. Plymouth was the site of the colony founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims, passengers of the Mayflower. Harvard University, founded in 1636 is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. In the 18th century, the Protestant First Great Awakening, which swept the Atlantic world, originated from the pulpit of Northampton, Massachusetts preacher Jonathan Edwards. In the late 18th century, Boston became known as the “Cradle of Liberty” for the agitation that led to the American Revolution and the independence of the United States from Great Britain. Originally dependent on fishing, agriculture, and trade, Massachusetts was transformed into a manufacturing center during the Industrial Revolution.

It became the first of the British North American colonies to break away from Great Britain in January 1776. Six months later, it was one of the original thirteen states that founded the United States of America. In June 1788, it became the ninth state to ratify the United States Constitution, bringing that document into effect. New Hampshire was the first U.S. state to have its own state constitution. It is known internationally for the New Hampshire primary, the first primary in the U.S. presidential election cycle. Concord is the state capital, while Manchester is the largest city in the state. It has no general sales tax, nor is personal income (other than interest and dividends) taxed at either the state or local level. Its license plates carry the state motto: “Live Free or Die”.

Connecticut, USA

Connecticut, USA

Connecticut.            It is the southernmost US state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. Connecticut is named after the Connecticut River, a major U.S. river that approximately bisects the state. Its capital city is Hartford. Connecticut’s center of population is in Cheshire, New Haven County. Connecticut was influential in the development of the federal government of the United States. Connecticut’s first European settlers were Dutch. They established a small, short-lived settlement in present-day Hartford at the confluence of the Park and Connecticut rivers, called Hoys de Geode Hoop. Initially, half of Connecticut was a part of the Dutch colony, New Netherland, which included much of the land between the Connecticut and Delaware rivers. The first major settlements were established in the 1630s by England. Thomas Hooker led a band of followers overland from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He founded what would become the Connecticut Colony; other settlers from Massachusetts founded the Say brook Colony and the New Haven Colony. Both the Connecticut and New Haven Colonies established documents of Fundamental Orders, considered the first constitutions in North America. In 1662, the three colonies were merged under a royal charter, making Connecticut a crown colony. This colony was one of the Thirteen Colonies that revolted against British rule during the American Revolution. The Connecticut River, Thames River, and ports along Long Island Sound have given the state a strong maritime tradition, which continues today. Connecticut’s other traditional industry is financial services; for example, insurance companies in Hartford and hedge funds in Fairfield County. As of the 2010 Census, Connecticut features the highest per capita income, Human Development Index (0.962), and median household income in the United States. Although Connecticut is a wealthy state by most measures, the income gap between its urban and suburban areas is striking, with several of Connecticut’s cities ranking among the nation’s poorest and most dangerous.

New York

New York

New York.     It is a state in the Northeastern region of the USA. The state has a maritime border with Rhode Island east of Long Island, as well as an international border with the Canada. The state of New York is often referred to as New York State to distinguish it from New York City. New York City is the most populous city in the United States. It makes up over 40 percent of the population of New York State. It is known for its status as a center for finance and culture.  It is also known for its status as the largest gateway for immigration to the United States. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, New York City is also a destination of choice for many foreign visitors. Both the state and city were named for the 17th century Duke of York, future King James II of England. New York was inhabited by various tribes of Algonquian and Iroquoian speaking Native Americans at the time Dutch settlers moved into the region in the early 17th century. In 1609, the region was first claimed by Henry Hudson for the Dutch. Fort Nassau was built near the site of the present-day capital of Albany in 1614. The Dutch soon also settled New Amsterdam and parts of the Hudson River Valley, establishing the colony of New Netherland. The British took over the colony by annexation in 1664. The borders of the British colony, the Province of New York, were roughly similar to those of the present-day state. About one third of all the battles of the Revolutionary War took place in New York. The state constitution was enacted in 1777. New York became the 11th state to ratify the United States Constitution, on July 26, 1788. The following places of this state have Gurdwaras:

New York served as the capital of United States from 1785 until 1790. It has been the country’s largest city since 1790. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to America by ship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is a globally recognized symbol of the United States and its democracy.

Woodside in Queens, New York

Woodside in Queens, New York

Woodside.    It is a middle class and commercial neighborhood in the western portion of the New York City borough of Queens. Some of its areas are widely residential and very quiet, while others (especially closer to Roosevelt Avenue) are more urban. In the 19th century the area was part of the Town of Newtown (now Elmhurst). The adjacent area of Winfield was largely incorporated into the post office serving Woodside and as a consequence Winfield lost much of its identity distinct from Woodside. With large scale residential development in the 1860s, Woodside became the largest Irish American community in Queens. In the early 1930s, the area was approximately 80% Irish. Even as the neighborhood has seen growth in ethnic diversity today, the area still retains a strong Irish American presence. There are a number of Irish pubs and restaurants scattered across Woodside. In the early 1990s, many Asian American families moved into the area, particularly east of the 61st Street Woodside subway station. In 2000, Woodside’s population was 30% Asian American. Woodside has a large population of Thai, Koran, Chinese and Filipino American each with their own respective ethnic enclave. There are also South Asian Americans, particularly Indian, Bangladesh, and Pakistani Americans, as well as a large Dominican and Latino population. Reflecting its longtime diverse foods and drink, the neighborhood is filled with many cultural restaurants and pubs. It is also home to some of the city’s most popular Thai, Filipino, Colombian, and Ecuadorian eateries. A “Little Manila” stretches from 63rd-71st Streets on Roosevelt Avenue, where many Filipino owned businesses have flocked to serve Woodside’s large Filipino American community. Woodside hosts the annual “Bayanihan Cultural Festival” at the Hart Playground in September in commemoration of the Filipino American History Month. Councilman Jimmy Van Braymer and Mayor Michael Bloomberg are advocates of the event. Woodside’s diversity lends itself to a number of festivals and street fairs. It commemorates Saint Patrick’s Day with a parade prior to the famous celebration in Manhattan. Woodside also hosts several events in the summer, including an Independence Day street fair. The neighborhood has many places of worship, as well as many schools like Corpus Christi Elementary School, Saint Sebastian’s Elementary School, and Razi School. The parks in the area include Doughboy Park, Windmueller Park, Big Bush Park, and Laurel Hill Park. Winfield Reform Church is also located in Woodside.

Jamaica, New York

Jamaica, New York

Jamaica.       It is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens. It was settled under Dutch rule in 1656 in New Netherland as Rustdorp. Under British rule, the Village of Jamaica became the center of the “Town of Jamaica”. Jamaica was the county seat of Queens County from the formation of the county in 1683 until March 7, 1788, when the town was reorganized by the state government and the county seat was moved to Mineola (now part of Nassau County). When Queens was incorporated into the City of Greater New York in 1898, both the Town of Jamaica and the Village of Jamaica were dissolved, but the neighborhood of Jamaica regained its role as county seat. Previously, it was known as one of the predominantly African American neighborhoods in the borough of Queens, Jamaica in recent years has been undergoing a sharp influx of other ethnicities. It has a substantial concentration of West Indian immigrants, Indians, Arabs, Russians, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Filipinos as well as many long established African American families. The neighborhood of Jamaica is completely unrelated to the Caribbean nation of Jamaica (although many residents are immigrants from Jamaica); the name similarity is a coincidence. The name derives from “Yameco”, a corruption of a word for “beaver” in the Lenape  language spoken by the Native Americans who lived in the area at the time of first European contact. The “y” sound in English is spelled with a “j” in Dutch, the first Europeans to write about the area. This resulted in the eventual English pronunciation of “Jamaica” when read and repeated orally. Jamaica is the location of several government buildings including Queens Civil Court, the civil branch of the Queens County Supreme Court, the Queens County Family Court and the Joseph P Addabbo Federal Building, home to the Social Security Administration’s Northeastern Program Service Center. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Northeast Regional Laboratory as well as the New York District Office are also located in Jamaica. Jamaica Center, the area around Jamaica Avenue and 165th Street, is a major commercial center, as well as the home of the Central Library of the Queens Borough Public Library.

Albany New York

Albany New York

Albany.          It is the capital city of New York State and the seat of Albany County. It is located at a distance of roughly 140 miles (230 km) north of New York City. Albany sits on the west bank of the Hudson River, about 10 miles (16 km) south of its confluence with the Mohawk River. Albany saw its first European settlement on November 2, 1614 and was officially chartered as a city in 1686. It became the capital of New York in 1797. It is one of the oldest surviving settlements from the original thirteen colonies and the longest continuously chartered city in the United States. Modern Albany was founded as the Dutch trading posts of Fort Nassau in 1614 and Fort Orange in 1624. The fur trade brought in a population that settled around Fort Orange and founded a village called Beverwick. The English took over and renamed the city Albany in 1664, in honor of the then Duke of Albany, the future James II of England and James VII of Scotland. The city was officially chartered in 1686 with the issuance of the Dorgan Charter, the oldest effective city charter in the United States and possibly the longest-running instrument of municipal government in the Western Hemisphere. Albany is one of the first cities in the world to have installed public water mains, sewer lines, natural gas lines and electricity, bringing substantial new industry to the city and surrounding area during the 19th century. During the late 18th century and throughout most of the 19th, Albany was a center of transportation. It is located on the north end of the navigable Hudson River, was the original eastern terminus of the Erie Canal, and was home to some of the earliest railroad system in the world. Albany’s main exports at the time were beer, lumber, published work, and ironworks. In the 20th century, the city opened one of the first commercial airports in the world, the precursor of today’s Albany International Airport. The 1920s saw the rise of a powerful political machine controlled by the Democratic Party. The city’s skyline changed in the 1960s with the construction of the Empire State Plaza and the uptown campus of SUNY Albany, mainly under the direction of Governor Nelson Rockefeller. More recently, the city has experienced growth in the high technology industry, with great strides in the nanotechnology sector. Albany has been a center of higher education for over a century, with much of the remainder of its economy dependent on state government and health care services. The city has experienced a rebound from the urban decline of the 1970s and 1980s, with noticeable development happening in the city’s downtown and midtown neighborhoods. Albany is known for its extensive history, culture, architecture, and institutions of higher education.

Buffalo, New York

Buffalo, New York

Buffalo.         It is Located in Western New York on the eastern shores of Lake Erie and at the head of the Niagara River across from Fort Erie, Ontario. Buffalo is the seat of Erie County. Originating around 1789 as a small trading community near the eponymous Buffalo Creek, Buffalo grew quickly after the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, with the city as its western terminus. By 1900, Buffalo was the 8th largest city in the United States, and went on to become a major railroad hub and the largest grain-milling center in the country. The latter part of the 20th century saw a reversal of fortunes: Great Lakes shipping were rerouted by the opening of the St Lawrence Seaway steel mills and other heavy industry relocated to places such as China. With the start of Amtrak in the 1970s, Buffalo Central Terminal was also abandoned, and trains were rerouted to nearby Depew, New York) and Exchange Street Station. By 1990 the city had fallen back below its 1900 population levels. Today, the region’s largest economic sectors are health care and, education. These continue to grow despite the lagging national and worldwide economies. This growth has been maintained, in part, by major expansions of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. The retail sector of Buffalo’s economy has remained strong throughout the economic recession due to additional revenue from Canadian shoppers who wish to take advantage of lower prices and taxes on the American side of the border.
