New York State Places is a rather grand name for a site encompassing two linear blocks of a small village in the central part of the state. Faced with the dilemma of either delaying the websites launch until a critical mass of building profiles could be completed or sharing our newly unearthed discoveries in real time, we chose the latter. For those who might rightly complain there is no there there upon encountering the site, we can only apologize and remind them that every community started with the building of a single house.
