27 Images of Upstate New York's Most Magnificent Landmarks

I've lived here my entire life, and I'm not sure I realized just how beautiful the Empire State truly is. There's no shortage of stunning landscapes and breathtaking views throughout the great State of New York.

It doesn't matter where you live, or where you travel, New York residents are never far from a gorgeous beach, a picturesque state park, or an awe-inspiring mountain.

In 2018, a photographer named Demetri Andritsakis made a 3-and-a-half-minute drone video highlighting many of New York's breathtaking views called "Upstate New York By Air".

Andritsakis submitted it to the 2018 New York State Fair Drone Film Festival, and deservedly so, he received a Gold Medal honor for his aerial work throughout upstate New York.
