New York is one of the most recognizable places on the planet, so it's only fitting that the state holds a number of various World Records.

According to the World Record Academy, New York State is currently home to 27 different World Records. Many of New York's World Records revolve around commerce and storefronts and many of them can be found in New York City.

New York State's World Record Titles

Some of New York State's world records are pretty unsurprising. New York is home to the largest stock exchange in the world - The New York Stock Exchange in lower Manhattan.

New York State also holds the record for hosting the largest marathon in the World, the New York City Marathon. People travel from all over the world to compete in the coveted race every single year. On average the race is made up of over 50,000 runners.

Nearly 100,000 people apply to run in the New York City Marathon each year, meaning only about half of all applicants get the opportunity to race the iconic 26.2-mile race.
