Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! answers about New York State in the category I posted a couple of weeks ago:

  1. Prospect Point provides excellent views of this attraction; Queen Victoria Park does the same from the Canadian side. – What is Niagara Falls?
  2. At Sunnyside, near Sleepy Hollow, New York, home of this “Rip Van Winkle author, he designed the home & grounds himself & wrote , “It is a beautiful spot, capable of being made a little paradise.” – Who is Washington Irving?
  3. Want to see the National Baseball Hall of Fame? Head to this village in Otsego County – What is Cooperstown?
  4. I got my first taste of stargazing as a 9-year-old kid in New York City when I took a trip to this facility at the American Museum of Natural History; later I took classes there & today I’m its director. – What is the Hayden Planetarium?
  5. What could be more serene than a visit to this resort in the Adirondacks, the USA’s first winter Olympics host? – What is Lake Placid?
