Footnotes ...

<1>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for New York.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- New York) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for New York. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from New YorkOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in New York. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.7097, Longitude: -73.9917    
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<4>If you're interested in how the shape of New York's counties, including New York, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<5>When we are planning a trip (for example, to New York), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
