New York's 19th congressional district
United States House of Representatives, New York District 19 is located in New York's Hudson Valley and Catskills regions. District 19 lies in the northernmost region of the New York metropolitan area and south of Albany, it is represented by Democrat Antonio Delgado. After redistricting in 2012, the 19th district comprises all of Columbia, Greene, Schoharie and Ulster counties, parts of Broome, Dutchess and Rensselaer counties. President Obama won the new district by 6.2% in 2012. The current 19th District is a merger between the former 20th and 22nd Congressional Districts. From 2003 to 2013, the 19th was composed of parts of Dutchess, Orange and Westchester Counties, in addition to the entirety of Putnam County. Much of this district is now the 18th District, while the current 19th is the successor of the former 20th District. Sitting 19th district representative Nan Hayworth opted to follow most of her constituents into the new 18th, but was defeated by Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton.
Most of the old 19th district is now part of the 18th district. Meanwhile, sitting 20th district representative Chris Gibson ran for re-election in the new 19th and won. On January 5, 2015, per his pledge when first elected not to serve more than four terms, Gibson announced that he would not run for re-election in 2016. In 2016, Democrat Zephyr Teachout was defeated by Republican John Faso in the November 8 election. Faso was defeated after only one term by Delgado. 1873-1875: Montgomery1913-1983: Parts of Manhattan1983-1993: Parts of Bronx, Westchester1993-2003: All of Putnam Parts of Dutchess, Westchester2003–2013: All of Putnam Parts of Dutchess, Rockland, Westchester2013–present: All of Columbia, Greene, Schoharie, Ulster Parts of Broome, Montgomery, RensselaerVarious New York districts have been numbered "19" over the years, including areas in New York City and various parts of upstate New York. The 19th District was a Manhattan-based district until 1980, it was the Bronx-Westchester seat now numbered the 17th District.
The present 19th District was the 21st District prior to the 1990s, prior to, the 25th District. Note that in New York State electoral politics there are numerous minor parties at various points on the political spectrum. Certain parties will endorse either the Republican or Democratic candidate for every office, hence the state electoral results contain both the party votes, the final candidate votes.

Richard Montgomery was an Irish soldier who first served in the British Army. He became a major general in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, he is most famous for leading the unsuccessful 1775 invasion of Canada. Montgomery was raised in Ireland. In 1754, he enrolled at Trinity College and two years joined the British Army to fight in the French and Indian War, he rose through the ranks, serving in North America and the Caribbean. After the war he was stationed at Fort Detroit during Pontiac's War, following which he returned to Britain for health reasons. In 1773, Montgomery returned to the Thirteen Colonies, married Janet Livingston, began farming; when the American Revolutionary War broke out, Montgomery took up the Patriot cause, was elected to the New York Provincial Congress in May 1775. In June 1775, he was commissioned as a brigadier general in the Continental Army. After Philip Schuyler became too ill to lead the invasion of Canada, Montgomery took over, he captured Fort St. Johns and Montreal in November 1775, advanced to Quebec City, where he joined another force under the command of Benedict Arnold.
On December 31, he was killed during the battle. The British gave him an honorable burial, his remains were moved to New York City in 1818. Montgomery was born near Swords in the north of County Dublin in Ireland, he was born into the County Donegal branch of the Clan Montgomery. His father, Thomas Montgomery, was a British Army officer and a Member of Parliament for the rotten borough of Lifford in east Donegal, which returned two MPs to the Irish Parliament. Thomas' brother Alexander Montgomery and cousin, another Alexander Montgomery, were both colonels and MPs for County Donegal. Another first cousin Alexander Montgomery was MP for County Monaghan. Richard Montgomery spent most of his childhood at Abbeville House in Kinsealy, near Swords, in County Dublin, where he learned to hunt, ride and fence. Thomas Montgomery made sure. Richard Montgomery entered Trinity College, Dublin in 1754. Despite his great love of knowledge, Montgomery did not receive a degree, he was urged by his father and his oldest brother Alexander to join the military, which he did on September 21, 1756.
His father purchased an ensign's commission for Montgomery. On February 3, 1757, the 17th Foot was ordered to march from its garrison at Galway and prepare to be deployed overseas. On May 5, Montgomery and the 17th Foot sailed from Cork for Nova Scotia, arriving in July; the British had planned an attempt on Louisbourg but the operation was called off, they sailed instead for winter quarters in New York. In 1758, the 17th Foot was sent back to Halifax, once again with the goal of taking Louisbourg; the British commanders, Jeffery Amherst and James Abercromby drew up a plan to assault the French at Louisbourg, located on the Atlantic coast of Cape Breton Island, north of Halifax. The French garrison consisted of only 800 men, while the British force had 13,142 troops supported by 23 ships of the line and 13 frigates. On June 8, 1758, the attack on the fort began. Montgomery landed on the beach under heavy fire and ordered his troops to advance with fixed bayonets; the outer French defenses withdrew back toward the city.
Montgomery's unit and the rest of the British force chased the French back to a point just outside the Fort's guns. At this point, the British prepared to besiege the city. Due to bad weather and other materials needed for the siege took several weeks to arrive onshore. Montgomery had his men dig entrenchments and build breastworks ordering his men stay alert to the possibility of a French attack. On July 9, the French attempted a breakout. On July 26, following a series of actions resulting in the destruction of most their fleet, the French surrendered. General Amherst was impressed by Montgomery's action during the siege, promoted him to lieutenant. On July 8, 1758, James Abercromby attacked Fort Carillon on Lake Champlain, but was repelled with heavy losses. In August and the 17th foot sailed to Boston, marched to join with Abercromby's forces in Albany and moved to Lake George. On November 9, Abercromby was recalled; the British high command, for the 1759 campaign, developed a plan for a three-pronged attack into Canada, in which forces including the 17th foot would assault Fort Carillon and capture Fort St. Frédéric, near Crown Point, New York.
Under Amherst's command and the 17th Foot participated in the capture of Fort Carillon. While the army was gathering prior to the battle, Montgomery's company was on guard duty. On May 9 his suspicions proved correct. Montgomery and the 17th met stiff resistance at first. Montgomery ordered. On July 21, the army began its movement toward Fort Carillon; that night, after some exchange of cannon fire during the day, the French blew up Carillon's powder magazine, Fort St. Frédéric the next day, withdrew to the far end of Lake Champlain; the 17th, placed under the command of Major General Robert Monckton la
Niagara County, New York
Niagara County is a county in the U. S. state of New York. As of the 2010 census, the population was 216,469; the county seat is Lockport. The county name is from the Iroquois word Onguiaahra. Niagara County is part of the Buffalo–Niagara Falls metropolitan area, across the Canada–US border is the province of Ontario, it is the location of Niagara Falls and Fort Niagara, has many parks and lake shore recreation communities. In the summer of 2008, Niagara County celebrated its 200th birthday with the first town of the county, Town of Cambria; when counties were established in the New York colony in 1683, the present Niagara County was part of Albany County. Prior to the British, the area was part of New Netherland. Niagara was an enormous county, including the northern part of New York State as well as all of the present State of Vermont and, in theory, extending westward to the Pacific Ocean; this county was reduced in size on July 3, 1766 by the creation of Cumberland County, further on March 16, 1770 by the creation of Gloucester County, both containing territory now in Vermont.
On March 12, 1772, what was left of Albany County was split into three parts, one remaining under the name Albany County. One of the other pieces, Tryon County, contained the western portion; the eastern boundary of Tryon County was five miles west of the present city of Schenectady, the county included the western part of the Adirondack Mountains and the area west of the West Branch of the Delaware River. The area designated as Tryon County now includes 37 counties of New York State; the county was named for colonial governor of New York. In the years prior to 1776, most of the Loyalists in Tryon County fled to Canada including the likes of local judge John Butler and militia commander Sir John Johnson. In 1784, following the peace treaty that ended the American Revolutionary War, the name of Tryon County was changed to honor the general, Richard Montgomery, who had captured several places in Canada and died attempting to capture the city of Quebec, replacing the name of the hated British governor.
In 1789, Ontario County was split off from Montgomery. In turn, Genesee County was created from Ontario County in 1802. Niagara County was created from Genesee County in 1808, it was, larger than the present Niagara County though it consisted of only the Town of Cambria. From 1814 to 1817, records of Cattaraugus County were divided between Buffalo. In 1821, Erie County was created from Niagara County; the county has a number of properties on the National Register of Historic Places. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,140 square miles, of which 522 square miles is land and 617 square miles is water. Niagara County is in the extreme western part of New York State, just north of Buffalo and adjacent to Lake Ontario on its northern border and the Niagara River and Canada on its western border; the county's primary geographic feature is Niagara Falls, the riverbed of which has eroded seven miles south over the past 12,000 years since the last Ice Age. The Niagara River and Niagara Falls, are in effect, the drainage ditch for four of the Great Lakes which constitute the world's largest supply of fresh water.
The water flows north from Lake Erie through the Niagara River, goes over Niagara Falls, on to Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River emptying into the North Atlantic Ocean. Today and visitors to the Falls see a diminished flow of water over the Falls, since a portion of the flow has been diverted for hydroelectric power purposes. Both the American and Canadian side of the Niagara River have massive electrical power plants; the spectacular Niagara Gorge is the path Niagara Falls has taken over thousands of years as it continues to erode. Niagara Falls started at the Niagara Escarpment which cuts Niagara County in half in an east-west direction. North of the Escarpment lies the Lake Ontario plain, a fertile flatland used to grow grapes, apples and other fruits and vegetables; the grape variety Niagara, source of most American white grape juice but not esteemed for wine, was first grown in the county, in 1868. Viticulture, or wine culture has begun to take place, with several wineries below the escarpment.
This has helped to improve the depressed economy of the region. To further capitalize on economic development, the state has created the Niagara Wine Trail. Orleans County - east Genesee County - southeast Erie County - south Regional Municipality of Niagara, Canada - west De Veaux Woods State Park, north of the City of Niagara Falls. Devil's Hole State Park north of the City of Niagara Falls. Fort Niagara State Park, located at the mouth of the Niagara River. Earl W. Brydges Artpark State Park, in the Town of Lewiston. Four Mile Creek State Park, on the shore of Lake Ontario. Golden Hill State Park, on the shore of Lake Ontario. Hartland Swamp Wildlife Management Area—a conservation area in the Town of Hartland. Joseph Davis State Park, along the Niagara River. Niagara Reservation State Park, in the City of Niagara Falls. Reservoir State Park, south of the power reservoir. Tonawanda Wildlife Management Area in the Town of Royalton. Wilson-Tuscarora State Park, on the shore of Lake Ontario. Niagara County was long a Democratic county, voting Democratic since 1980 with the exception of Reagan's 1984 landslide.
However, in 2016, Trump's appeal with white-working class voters flipped this county to a decisive 18-point Republican win, bigger than Reagan's 11-point win. Niagara County is governe
A county seat is an administrative center, seat of government, or capital city of a county or civil parish. The term is used in Canada, Romania and the United States. County towns have a similar function in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, in Jamaica. In most of the United States, counties are the political subdivisions of a state; the city, town, or populated place that houses county government is known as the seat of its respective county. The county legislature, county courthouse, sheriff's department headquarters, hall of records and correctional facility are located in the county seat though some functions may be located or conducted in other parts of the county if it is geographically large. A county seat is but not always, an incorporated municipality; the exceptions include the county seats of counties that have no incorporated municipalities within their borders, such as Arlington County, Virginia. Ellicott City, the county seat of Howard County, is the largest unincorporated county seat in the United States, followed by Towson, the county seat of Baltimore County, Maryland.
Some county seats may not be incorporated in their own right, but are located within incorporated municipalities. For example, Cape May Court House, New Jersey, though unincorporated, is a section of Middle Township, an incorporated municipality. In some of the colonial states, county seats include or included "Court House" as part of their name. In the Canadian provinces of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, the term "shire town" is used in place of county seat. County seats in Taiwan are the administrative centers of the counties. There are 13 county seats in Taiwan, which are in the forms of county-administered city, urban township or rural township. Most counties have only one county seat. However, some counties in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont have two or more county seats located on opposite sides of the county. An example is Harrison County, which lists both Biloxi and Gulfport as county seats; the practice of multiple county seat towns dates from the days.
There have been few efforts to eliminate the two-seat arrangement, since a county seat is a source of pride for the towns involved. There are 36 counties with multiple county seats in 11 states: Coffee County, Alabama St. Clair County, Alabama Arkansas County, Arkansas Carroll County, Arkansas Clay County, Arkansas Craighead County, Arkansas Franklin County, Arkansas Logan County, Arkansas Mississippi County, Arkansas Prairie County, Arkansas Sebastian County, Arkansas Yell County, Arkansas Columbia County, Georgia Lee County, Iowa Campbell County, Kentucky Kenton County, Kentucky Essex County, Massachusetts Middlesex County, Massachusetts Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bolivar County, Mississippi Carroll County, Mississippi Chickasaw County, Mississippi Harrison County, Mississippi Hinds County, Mississippi Jasper County, Mississippi Jones County, Mississippi Panola County, Mississippi Tallahatchie County, Mississippi Yalobusha County, Mississippi Jackson County, Missouri Hillsborough County, New Hampshire Seneca County, New York Bennington County, Vermont In New England, the town, not the county, is the primary division of local government.
Counties in this region have served as dividing lines for the states' judicial systems. Connecticut and Rhode Island have no county level of thus no county seats. In Vermont and Maine the county seats are designated shire towns. County government consists only of a Superior Court and Sheriff, both located in the respective shire town. Bennington County has two shire towns. In Massachusetts, most government functions which would otherwise be performed by county governments in other states are performed by town or city governments; as such, Massachusetts has dissolved many of its county governments, the state government now operates the registries of deeds and sheriff's offices in those counties. In Virginia, a county seat may be an independent city surrounded by, but not part of, the county of which it is the administrative center. Two counties in South Dakota have their county seat and government services centered in a neighboring county, their county-level services are provided by Fall River Tripp County, respectively.
In Louisiana, divided into parishes rather than counties, county seats are referred to as parish seats. Alaska is divided into boroughs rather than counties; the Unorganized Borough, which covers 49 % of Alaska's area, has equivalent. The state with the most counties is Texas, with 254, the state with the fewest counties is Delaware, with 3.

The Adirondack Mountains form a massif in northeastern New York, United States. Its boundaries correspond to the boundaries of Adirondack Park; the mountains form a circular dome, about 160 miles in diameter and about 1 mile high. The current relief owes much to glaciation; the earliest written use of the name, spelled Rontaks, was in 1729 by the French missionary Joseph-François Lafitau. He defined it as tree eaters. In the Mohawk language, Adirondack means an animal that may eat bark; the Mohawks had no written language at the time. An English map from 1761 labels it Deer Hunting Country and the mountains were named Adirondacks in 1837 by Ebenezer Emmons. People first arrived in the area following the settlement of the Americas around 10,000 BC; the Algonquian peoples and the Mohawk nation used the Adirondacks for hunting and travel but did not settle. European colonisation of the area began with Samuel de Champlain visiting what is now Ticonderoga in 1609, Jesuit missionary Isaac Jogues visited the region in 1642.
In 1664 the land came under the control of the English. After the American Revolutionary War, the lands passed to the people of New York State. Needing money to discharge war debts, the new government sold nearly all the original public acreage about 7 million acres for pennies an acre. Lumbermen were welcomed with few restraints, resulting in massive deforestation. In 1989, part of the Adirondack region was designated by UNESCO as the Champlain-Adirondack Biosphere Reserve; the rocks of the Adirondack mountains originated about two billion years ago as 50,000 feet thick sediments at the bottom of a sea located near the equator. Because of continental drift these collided with Laurentia in a mountain building episode known as the Grenville orogeny. During this time the sedimentary rock was changed into metamorphic rock, it is these Proterozoic lithologies that make up the core of the massif. Minerals of interest include: wollastonite, mined near Harrisville magnetite and hematite mined at the Benson Mines, Lyon Mountain, Mineville and Witherbee.
Graphite, mined near Hague and Ticonderoga. Garnet, mined at the Barton Mine, north of Gore Mountain. Anorthosite, visible in road cuts on the New York State Route 3 between Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake. Marble zinc: The Balmat-Edwards district on the northwest flank of the massif in St. Lawrence County was a major zinc ore deposit titanium was mined at Tawahus. Note that though they all resulted from the Grenville orogeny, neither the Adirondacks nor the Catskills or Poconos are part of the Appalachian Mountain chain. Around 600 million years ago, as Laurentia drifted away from Baltica, the area began to be pulled apart forming the Iapetus Ocean. Faults developed, running north to north east which formed deep lakes. Examples visible today include the grabens Schroon Lake. By this time the Grenville mountains had been eroded away and the area was covered by a shallow sea. Several thousand feet of sediment accumulated on the sea bed. Trilobites were the principal life-form of the sea bed, fossil tracks can be seen in the Potsdam sandstone floor of the Paul Smiths Visitor Interpretive Center.
About 10 million years ago the region began to be uplifted. It has been lifted about 7000 feet and is continuing at about 2 millimetres per year, greater than the rate of denudation; the cause of the uplift is unknown, but geologists theorize that it is caused by a hot spot in the earth's crust. A recent study has revealed a column of seismically slow materials about 50-80 km deep beneath the Adirondack Mountains, interpreted to be the upwelling asthenosphere contributing to the uplift of the mountains; the occurrence of earthquake swarms near the center of the massif at Blue Mountain Lake may be evidence of this. Some of the earthquakes have exceeded 5 on the Richter magnitude scale. Starting about 2.5 million years ago a cycle of Pleistocene glacial and interglacial periods began which covered the area in ice. During the most recent episode, the Laurentide ice sheet covered most of northern North America between about 95,000 and c. 20,000 years ago. After this the climate warmed, but it took nearly 10,000 years for all of the 10,000 feet thick layer of ice to melt.
Evidence of this period includes: Eskers: the Rainbow Lake esker bisects the eponymous lake and extends discontinuously for 85 miles. Another long discontinuous esker extends from Mountain Pond through Keese Mill, passing between Upper St. Regis Lake and the Spectacle Ponds, continuing to Ochre and Lydia Ponds in the St. Regis Canoe Area. A 150 foot high esker bisects the Five Ponds Wilderness Area. Glacial erratics: there is a large one at the Newcomb Visitor Information Centre next to the Rich Lake Trail. Kames Moraines The cirques. Outwash plains: St. Regis Canoe Area is an outwash plain pitted with kettle holes. Soils in the area are thin, sandy and infertile, having developed since the glacial retreat; the Adirondack Mountains form the southernmost part of the Eastern forest-boreal transition ecoregion. They are forested, contain one of the southernmost distribution taiga in North America; the forests of the Adirondacks include spruce and deciduous trees. Lumbering, once an important industry, has been much restricted by the creation of the park.
The mountains include many wetlands, of which there are three kinds: Swamps, any wetland incl
Binghamton metropolitan area
The Binghamton Metropolitan Statistical Area called Greater Binghamton or the Triple Cities, is a region of southern upstate New York in the Northeastern United States, anchored by the city of Binghamton. The MSA encompasses Broome and Tioga counties, which together had a population of 251,725 as of the 2010 census. From 1963 to 1983, the MSA included neighboring Susquehanna County in Pennsylvania, part of which still falls in the Binghamton, NY–PA Urban Area. In addition to these three counties, the greater region includes parts of Delaware and Chenango counties in New York. Using the definition of a 30-mile radius from Binghamton, the population as of the 2010 census is 317,331; the Greater Binghamton name was adopted in the early 21st century to better identify the region with its most well-known city in efforts of marketing and external promotion. The metropolitan area is located in the Southern Tier of New York State and lies on Pennsylvania's northern border 66 miles south of Syracuse, New York.
The region has been known as the Triple Cities and is made up of Binghamton, Johnson City, Endicott, New York, the latter two of which are technically villages. The area is sometimes called the "Greater Binghamton Area" as the city of Binghamton is the largest and most prominent of the three, with a population greater than the other two combined, a much larger geographical area; the three incorporated areas are squeezed together and can seem like a single large, albeit spread out, city. They are economically integrated. For example, many people living in Binghamton go shopping at the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City on a regular basis, it's common for someone living in one city to work or go to school in one of the other two; some have put forward the idea of merging the three into a single city, but it seems politically unlikely. While "triple cities" covers only the three main municipalities mentioned, the term is used by some to refer broadly to the surrounding area of conurbation, including Endwell, West Corners, the Upper Front Street area, the town of Vestal.
Vestal is home to the Vestal Parkway, a major commercial strip for the entire area, housing one of the two major multiplex theaters in the area, a number of shopping plazas, major chain stores, eateries. Binghamton University is physically located in Vestal, though its mailing address is in Binghamton; the Municipalities all sit together, parallel to the Southern Tier Expressway. This along with a junction to Interstate 81, Interstate 88, U. S. Route 11 along with New York State Route 12, form the main transportation routes for the area. NY 17, I-81 are the high-speed roadways providing quick expressway access between the cities, while the other two serve as secondary gateways to the area. Interstate 88 starts between exits 6 on I-81 and terminates in Albany. Broome County Transit operates 14 fixed route bus lines in and around Binghamton and its metropolitan area. Greyhound Bus Lines and New York Trailways operate intercity coach bus service through Binghamton with direct connection to major cities in the region such as Ithaca, Rochester and New York City In addition, Greater Binghamton Airport is located in Maine, New York.
As of 2018, Delta is the only commercial carrier with scheduled service. Main Street begins at downtown Binghamton and runs through Johnson City and Endicott.
