<1>If you're interested in how the shape of New York's counties, including Livingston, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Lima.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Lima - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a village (such as Lima). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Lima or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Lima) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Lima. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from LimaOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Lima.
