Why Schoharie County?

Just minutes from New York State’s Capital Region, Schoharie County sits a few hours from New York City or Boston and a day’s drive from several large metropolitan areas, including Philadelphia and Toronto. An overnight trip puts your product in 35 of the top retail markets in the country.

Schoharie County can accommodate any transportation, from roads to rails, deepwater port to air travel.

Interstate 88 serves as a direct route from the Capital Region to New York’s Southern Tier, extending into Ohio. The junction at Interstate 81 puts your vehicles on a major trucking route that heads south to the Mid-Atlantic or north to Canada.

Add to all this the number of resources and incentives that make moving business practical and profitable and the question becomes “Why NOT Schoharie County.”
