New York State, the Capital Region in particular, is full of many wonderful areas for you to explore. From the Catskills to the Adirondacks and all around there is some really great nature for you to take in. However you'll need to be careful about some of these spots.
Only In Your State has ranked the 9 most deadly, dangerous places in all of New York. Three of the locations are ones you've probably visited on multiple occasions.
The most deadly placed they ranked were the Canajoharie Falls. While the falls are beautiful in Wintergreen Park, they can be deadly. The site points out that three people were killed jumping into the falls between 2001 and 2004. While it seems easy to jump the falls, there is a stone ledge at the edge of the falls that can prove deadly.
Local police officers now hand out tickets to those who trespass in the area of the falls in order to avoid more deaths from tourists and locals attempting to jump.
Devil's Path in the beautiful Catskills is the second most deadly spot. One of the most difficult hikes on the whole East Coast.
Here's a run down of the top 10:
- Canajoharie Falls
- Devils Path
- Kaaterskill Falls
- Taconic State Parkway
- Salmon River Falls
- City of Newburgh
- The Adirondack High Peaks
- Broadway in New York City
