Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced the beginning of the 2016 fall foliage season in New York State and the release of the I Love NY fall foliage report — a volunteer-sourced document charting the color conditions of leaves across the state.
Additionally, to promote New York’s autumn locations, travelers are encouraged to join the 2016 Foliage Photog of the Week campaign and share photos of New York State on social media by using #NYLovesFall.
The campaign will run through early November, and one posted photo will be selected and shared across all I Love NY social media channels each week. To qualify, users must tag photos with the name of the location of where the image was taken.
“New York is home to some of the most spectacular foliage and natural beauty in the country, making it one of the nation’s top destinations to visit in autumn,” said Cuomo. “This is the perfect time for New Yorkers and visitors alike to take a trip to any number of state parks, historic sites and attractions across this great state and discover all there is to love about this special time of year in New York.”
