The Presbytery of Northern New York extends from Lake Champlain on the east to Lake Ontario on the west, bordered by The St. Lawrence River on the north and extends into the Adirondack mountains to the south. Recreational enthusiasts can enjoy 4 seasons of fun from downhill skiing at Whiteface Mountain, home of the 1980 Winter Olympics to bass fishing in the St Lawrence river or enjoying a quiet day on the water on Lake Champlain or Lake Ontario. There is also hiking, mountain climbing and camping in the Adirondacks as well as many fairs and festivals celebrating the uniqueness and history of the area. Our dairy industry and agriculture as well as tourism make up a large part of the economy, supporting our many small towns and villages. Ft. Drum, home of the 10th Mountain Division, is the north country's largest employer.
