NEW YORK, one of the Middle Atlantic states of the U.S., bordered on the N by the Canadian provinces of Ontario and QuÉbec; on the E by Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut; on the SE by the Atlantic Ocean; on the S by New Jersey and Pennsylvania; and on the W by Pennsylvania and Ontario.
New York was the preeminent U.S. state in commerce and manufacturing from the early 19th century until the late 1960s, when it began to be surpassed by California; in the 1990s it continued to be a leading component of the U.S. economy and remained first in many branches of economic activity.
Although not noted as a fishing state, New York ranks among the top 15 states in the U.S. in terms of the value of the annual catch, which was estimated at $51 million in the late 1980s.

 1997 WP Abstracts
Although the French state designed and closely regulated the urban development of French American towns and ports, it is striking that most of the towns developed aspects independent of absolutist control and remained nests of colonial autonomy.
The development of the state in early modern England was not a matter simply of executive will or "centralisation." Instead it rested on a process of elite co-option in which influential groups made use of Crown authority in pursuit of their own interests or ideals.
The increasing reach of Crown authority was therefore partly the result of a mutuality of interests between "centre" and "locality." The paper suggests that this is a helpful perspective from which to examine the development of the extended Tudor/Stuart polity in the British Atlantic world.
