At Knight Automotive, we're proud to belong to a tight-knit community like Plattsburgh. With a vibrant community, rich culture, and unique heritage, the city truly is one of the best places to live in New York. W hether you like shopping, antiquing, or simply enjoying scenery, there's something for everyone in Plattsburgh.
The town was first settled in 1785, and was under French influence for many years. It wasn't until 1815 that the city was actually incorporated. Thanks to its location on a major water thoroughfare, the city is home to many historic events from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. Its strategic location and predictable climate also made it a prime location for the Plattsburgh Air Force Base.
Plattsburgh has the perfect balance of small-town and big-city feel. Located 64 miles south of Montreal and 163 miles north of Albany, the city is known as a transportation hub on the western shore of Lake Champlain. Thanks to its place on the Adirondack Coast, the city is home to beautiful scenery and some of the best hiking on the East Coast. Many visitors enjoy fishing, kayaking, and canoeing on Lake Champlain, as well as blazing new trails on the Adirondacks.
There are several museums and landmarks in the area, including the Adirondack Museum, The Wild Center, and the historic Fort Ticonderoga among others. The town is also located near many natural wonders including the Ausable Chasm, High Falls Gorge, Howe Caverns, and the Natural Stone Bridge & Caves Park.
