If I remember correctly, the Appalachian mountains pass through New York. Where there is mountains, eventually volcanoes tend to pop up. I was thinking, through some weird coincidence doing with the moon going out of orbit, then a volcano would mysteriously pop up in the mountains. However, I'm not sure how close the mountains are to Albany, so if they are a distance, then we would say something like, 'A volcano grew out of the ground in Albany' (Lol, jk, but you get my point).
Tell me what you think.
