Where is Chateaugay, New York, USA? 

Chateaugay is a town in Franklin County, New York, United States. The name is derived from a location in France, which was applied to a local land grant.

Within the Town of Chateaugay is a village named Chateaugay. The town is in the northeast corner of the county.
