New York was named in honor of the English Duke of York.  Much of New York State's terrain is hilly or mountainous.  The Adirondacks dominate the northeast, while the Catskills are located in the southeast.  The hilly Appalachian Plateau slopes down to Lake Ontario and the Saint Lawrence River in the northwest.  The state's chief river, the Hudson, drains the north and empties New York Bay, an important East Coast seaport.  Popular tourist destinations include Niagara Falls and New York City's many museums and attractions.  Summer vacationers flock to Long Island's beaches as well as Lake George and the Finger Lakes, while skiers and snowboarders enjoy the snowy Catskill and Adirondack slopes during the winter months.
