    Numbers like this are never good for workers or the travel industry.

    A new poll has found that 42 percent of New York residents say they will not take a vacation of a week or more this summer.

    The poll of state residents released Thursday by Siena College found that a small majority of respondents, 56 percent, said they will take a vacation of at least one week in the coming months.

    Most of the vacationers plan a road trip and most are headed to the ocean.

    One in five people are vacationing for two or more weeks.

    The telephone poll of 801 residents was conducted June 1-28. The poll has an overall margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
