Parts of New York State are in the New York Metropolitan Area. It includes Westchester County, Rockland County and Orange County.
The Metropolitan Area includes Long Island’s Nassau County and Suffolk County, and counties further away in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and even Pennsylvania.
Here’s a shout out to Governor Cuomo who has been a wonderful surrogate for common sense during hard times.

There’s Another World Beyond NYC
When we first moved to New York City, our boss warned us that we should get out of the city once in a while to keep our head straight. Being brand new New Yorkers, we ignored him, but he was right.
In 30 minutes to an hour north, you are in the countryside. And you don’t need a car. You can take Amtrak north to the beautiful little Hudson River Valley towns. There are usually taxis waiting for the train. If not, the locals know the local car services.
One of the first things you notice when you get out of New York City is the horizon. Deep in the city, most sky views are vertical. Seeing the open skies is really relaxing.
