Allegheny Plateau – Glaciated
This region covers almost one third of the state. It is located in western and southern New York. On the east, the plateau is separated from the Hudson-Mohawk lowlands by the Heidelberg escarpment. Severe dissection by both water and ice erosion has given this region a rugged topography.

Tug Hill Plateau
It is an upland region in upstate New York, famous for heavy winter snow fall. It is an outlier of the Appalachians, entirely separated from other provinces. The region lies east of Lake Ontario and north of Oneida Lake. Although the region has traditionally been known as the Tug Hill Plateau because of its flat top, it is not a plateau. It is a cuesta which is a ridge with a gentle slope on one side.
This province extends across the Hudson River in the northeast-southwest direction. It covers southern Orange and northern Rockland Counties and the area from southern Dutchess County, parts of Putnam County and Westchester County. It is a rugged, mountainous upland.
