The nine most dangerous locations in New York state were recently identified and the Hudson Valley is home to a few. OnlyInYourState.com highlights a few places you're going to want to avoid in 2017 and beyond.

Newburgh gets a bum rap because, while there are certainly bright spots in the city's long path to recovery, it unfortunately remains one the most dangerous cities in the state. It appears at number six.

The Taconic State Parkway is named as the fourth most dangerous location in the state and is hazardous for many reasons. Whether your dodging speeding commuters or a deer jumps out in front of your car, it's important you stay on your toes when driving at any point of this 104 mile road.

Kaaterskill Falls is a breathtaking waterfall in the town of Hunter. Unfortunately, there have been several deaths over the years as a result of people getting too close to the edge. Upgrades have made it safer but please be careful if you're going off on an adventure.

The most dangerous location on the list is in Montgomery County and is another waterfall. We're not sure how to pronounce Canajoharie Falls, but we now know not to attempt to jump because of a hidden ledge that has resulted in several deaths.
