New York is a state in the northeastern United States. 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.
Rensselaer is a county in the New York, United States. In 2000, the population of the city was 152,538 and an area of 1,723 square kilometers. Its name is in honor of the family of Killiaen Van Rensselaer, the original Dutch owner of the land in the area. Its county seat is Troy. The county was a part of Rensselaerwyck, a huge land holding purchased by Kiliaen van Rensselaer from the Mohawk and Mohican Indians, starting in 1630. This was a vast county, including the northern part of present-day New York State as well as all of the present State of Vermont.  

A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Rensselaer is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
