Reading Pine Barrens now and it’s lovely. Did he ever write anything about New York State, or is there anything of a similar style worth reading that’s set in NY (sort of semi-narrative placeology, a little ecology, a little history, a little anthropology and political economy all mixed together in fine prose)

Not very much! He's deep New Jersey. "Giving Good Weight" is a nice short piece about the greenmarket. There are some New Yorky bits in In Suspect Terrain.
