Plattsburgh is the largest city in Northern NY and is Clinton County's seat. It's population is around twenty thousand people. It sit on Lake Champlain and once had a large lumber mill industry too.The city boasts a major New York State, or SUNY college, Plattsburgh State and once had a large SAC Airforce Base. The old airforce base, right off the Northway at Exit 36, has been converted into a successful industrial park, called PARC.

It was founded in 1785 by Zephaniah Platt by a grant from Governor Clinton. The area had some French Canadian influence before the Revolutionary War. it was the scene of several notable battles in the Revolutionary and 1812 War, including Valcour Island and the Naval Battle of Plattsburgh. Valcour Island was a stunning naval battle won by us by the once brilliant and respected General Benedict Armold, before he jumped ship. The town used to host the huge Strategic Air Command Air Force base, which was closed in the nineties, as is the policy of the military to locate large bases in cheaper southern and western states. It also hosts SUNY Plattsburgh, a major part of the state college system.
