New York is a state in the Northeastern region of the United States. New York is the 27th-most extensive, the third-most populous, and the seventh-most densely populated of the 50 United States. New York is bordered by New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south and by Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont to the east. The state has a maritime border with Rhode Island east of Long Island, as well as an international border with the Canadian provinces of Ontario to the west and north, and Quebec to the north. The state of New York is often referred to as New York State, so as to distinguish it from New York City.

New York City, with a Census-estimated population of over 8.3 million in 2012, is the most populous city in the United States. Alone, it makes up over 40 percent of the population of New York State. It is known for its status as a center for finance and culture and for its status as the largest gateway for immigration to the United States. New York City attracts considerably more foreign visitors than any other US city. Both the state and city were named for the 17th century Duke of York, future King James II of England.

Woodstock

Bethel is a town in Sullivan County, New York, USA. The population has been estimated at 4,255 in 2010.

The town received worldwide fame after it became the host of the 1969 Woodstock Festival, which was originally planned for Wallkill, NY, but was relocated to Bethel after Wallkill withdrew.

Woodstock '94, often called the "commercial Woodstock" or "Mudstock", was a music festival organized to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the original Woodstock festival of 1969. It was promoted as "2 More Days of Peace and Music." The famous poster used to promote the first concert was revised to feature two birds perched on a guitar fretboard (instead of one), with the headstock of an electric guitar.

The concert was scheduled for August 13 and 14 of 1994, but a third day (August 12) was added.

Samuel S. "Sam" Yasgur (born 9 January 1942) is an attorney; Sullivan County, New York official; and the son of Max Yasgur, who leased land on his 600 acres (2.4 km2) dairy farm in Bethel, New York for the Woodstock Music & Art Festival in August 1969. Yasgur has said that his "consultations with his father" played a crucial role in the concert coming to Bethel. He grew up on his father's farm, and was a graduate of Cornell University and the University of Chicago School of Law.

Yasgur was a 27-year-old assistant district attorney in Manhattan when his father allowed the Woodstock Festival to take place on his land. The concert had just been barred from taking place at the Orange County town of Wallkill, NY. The Woodstock Festival took place from August 15 to 18, 1969.
