New York is a state in the Northeastern United States and is the 27th-most extensive, fourth-most populous, and seventh-most densely populated U.S. state. New York is bordered by New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south and Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont to the east. The state has a maritime border in the Atlantic Ocean with Rhode Island, east of Long Island, as well as an international border with the Canadian provinces of Quebec to the north and Ontario to the west and north. The state of New York, with an estimated 19.8 million residents in 2015, is often referred to as New York State to distinguish it from New York City, the state's most populous city and its economic hub.
This interesting cover posted from Greenvale Post Office in New York on June 11, 2016 and received in my hands on June 29,2016. These beautiful covers sent by my very good friend Denise from New York. I started new project to collect covers from all US states with their flag stamps by using "flag of our nation " series stamps. I am very happy it reached in perfect condition and with clear postmark ! Thanks again Denise for the big help and wonderful cover.
