New York State is home to the largest city in the nation, together with a number of other diverse, some beautiful, cosmopolitan cities. Here are four of the best to consider when it comes to forming your New York State LLC.
The most famous and most populated city in the United States, New York is a major center for business, culture, innovation and the arts. New York is a “global power city” and exerts tremendous influence over many industries and is known as the cultural and financial capital of the world. As a hub of international business and commerce, New York is a leader in the technology, banking and finance, tourism, transportation, retailing, world trade, media, real estate, legal, advertising, accountancy, insurance, theater and fashion sectors. Many of the largest businesses in the world are headquartered in New York City.
Located in the north east of New York State, on the shores of Lake Ontario and near the border with Canada, Rochester is the third most populous city in the Empire State. Although it’s famous for being the birthplace of Kodak and Xerox, the economy of Rochester has diversified significantly over the last few years. The city is now a major center for the high-tech industry, food and beverage production.
Although it’s dwarfed by New York City, Buffalo is the second most populous city in New York State. Originally built around the steel, grain and automobile industries, Buffalo’s economy is now refocused on technology, biotech, education and financial services. After a decline, Buffalo is now adding employment and has one of the most affordable housing markets and cost of living in the U.S. for a major city.
As the capital of New York State, Albany is a popular city to start a business. The district is a major part of “Tech Valley” and technology, together with government, healthcare and education are the major industries in the city and surrounding areas. Albany also has excellent transportation links.
