Alfred (T)

New York is a state in the northeastern United States. It is called New York State when there is need to distinguish it from New York City. Because a significant majority of the population is concentrated in the southern portion around New York City, the state is often regionalized into Upstate and Downstate. New York is the home of Ellis Island, where many immigrants in the early 20th century arrived in the United States.
Alfred is a town in Allegany County, New York, USA. The population was 5,140 at the 2000 census. The Town of Alfred has a village named Alfred in the center of the town. The Town of Alfred was formed in 1808 from part of the Town of Angelica. Subsequently, other towns were formed from parts of Alfred. The town has a total area of 81.8 square kilometers.
In 1806, Allegany County was created from lands that previously had been part of both Steuben and Genesee Counties. Within a year of the County's formation, Clark Crandall and Nathan and Edward Greene walked into the area from the hills of Rensselaer County three hundred miles east. They and those who followed came from families who called themselves Seventh Day Baptists, some of whose ancestors had branched off from Roger Williams' Baptist Church in Newport, Rhode Island.
Alfred is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in New York worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of New York.
