1. With more than 16,000 members, New York has the fastest growing Amish population in the nation. In the North Country, many belong to the ultraconservative Swartzentruber community, which permits battery-operated flashlights but few other technologies. Though their buggies’ lack of mirrors, lights, and warning triangles occasionally causes disgruntlement, they otherwise enjoy a harmonious relationship with their “English” neighbors, exchanging services like hoof-trimming and carpentry for emergency car rides and telephone calls. In 2014, North Country Amish made international headlines when two sisters got abducted from a roadside vegetable stand. Worlds collided when police asked their family for photos to issue an alert. They had none to offer, due to their religious beliefs, but consented to allow a sketch artist to make an illustration of their twelve-year-old (albeit, not their seven-year-old). The sisters resurfaced a day later, and the suspects were arrested and charged with kidnapping.
