    You know now that I think about it, I spent a night in Healy, AK drinking with some dude from south of the Mason Dixon line back in the nineties. We all got pretty shitty and eventually he forgot my...

    I think the early consensus was actually that Westchester, NYC and Long Island are downstate. Rockland is either undetermined or in some sort of purgatory and the rest is upstate. If you want to...

    All indisputably upstate- both geographically and thematically

    Yeah, itís almost like somebody started using ďupstateĒ as code for something. Maybe we need another thread to figure out what upstate really means, like in a spiritual sense.

    When I was a kid, my family used to occasionally visit some family friends who had a cabin on Chazy Lake. On one of those trips I somehow got my hands on a t shirt with a pic of the Dannemora prison....

    Thereís one in Jersey now too, right across the border. Frankly I donít see what the big deal was.

    Gypsy cabs were just dudes with sketchy cars that ran illegal taxis back in the day before Uber when the outer boroughs were neglected. For that matter, they may still exist. I donít know. I havenít...

    Helos and cops aside- regarding the cab situation, I feel your pain there. Multiple times I attempted to stage a sit-in protest in the back of a yellow cab that wouldn’t drive me back to the Bronx....

    I know. I’m not saying they should stop. I can’t explain why I don’t like it. It just sounds gross to me, the way some people don’t like to hear “slack”, “moist” or “meal”. I know somebody that hates...

    I guess I didn’t read it closely enough. She went to Nyack first but ended up at Jacoby. Nyack hospital does kind of suck in my opinion but that may be a personal bias, as I’ve had bad experiences...

    This is good advice. You don’t see it everywhere but Ballantine Finest is a very high quality but inexpensive blend. If you’re into the smoke but still a newby, Chivas 12 yr is known as a slightly...

    I loved visiting the fort as a kid but felt very betrayed when I brought my kids and realized it was a rebuild/ replica.

    For some reason I find it jarring when people refer to Ticonderoga as ďTiĒ.

    Good question. I believe they would get along famously so we may never solve that one.

    I agree. I was just pointing out that itís a shithole. Whatís your ruling on Rockland County? You have to switch trains in NJ to get here by rail.

    If you can find Utica Club then you are definitely upstate. Need to remind myself to pick some up next time I visit my dad.

    I think Harriman straddles the Rockland/Orange border. The rattlesnake point is hard to argue against

    Yeah, this is right. Just cause you talk like a Midwesterner doesn’t make you one. All of upstate (including Buffalo) is upstate.

    This is the most truth so far but I just discovered this thread so you all will need to give me a little time to catch up. Not for nothing but most days Rockland FEELS more like a part of the metro...

    Thatís a good description of the situation. I always thought the most heartbreaking aspect of the story was how close he was to two viable ways out.
