When most of us think of New York state, the Big Apple comes to mind. However, Larchmont, Jewett, DeWitt, Onondaga, Babylon, Yonkers, New Castle, and West Carthage are making a name for themselves. A total of 34 New York communities are standing up against climate change by pledging to make their municipal operations and their communities Climate Smart.
