Geology of New York Geology of New York: A Simplified Account
This is the New York State Geological Survey's most popular publications. An excellent overview of the Empire State's complex bedrock and surficial geology. It is the required textbook utilized by college professors across New York State for their introductory geology courses.

The book includes a Highway Geology Map of New York, which can be purchased separately at very reasonable cost. This is a beautiful 1:1,000,000 scale time/stratigraphic bedrock map of the state, with lots of statigraphic charts and a satelite image photo mosaic of the state on the flip side.
