New York state is one of the 13 original states of the United States. To New York state's North and West is Lake Erie, Lake Ontario in the Canadian province of Ontario and the province of Quebec (Canadian). to the east of New York state are the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont. To the south east New York state meets the Atlantic Ocean and New Jersey and to the south of New York state is Pennsylvania. The state capital of New York state is Albany.

Up till the 1960s, New York state was the United State's leading state in terms of almost all economic,cultural and population indexes. New York state was overtaken by California in the middle of 1960s. This was due to the fast economic growth of the West Coast and not a decline of New York state.

Texas overtook New York and became the second most populated state in 2000. New York state is still one of the most populated states in the US. In fact, the gross economic product of New York state is higher than some countries in the world.

New York state is a principal gateway to the west from the Mid Atlantic and New England states. New York state is also a hub for travel and attracts many tourists from around the country and internationally.

With our eye for detail, exquisite craftsmanship and the infinite possibilities we offer in texture and color, our engaging designs in gratings complement the vision of international architects and designers.
