    Is there any other state with this issue?

    Btw, how does one do an umlaut on a US keyboard?
    It's easy on an Android phone. I hold any given letter and a whole host of options pop up. On the computer, not so much.

    Maybe pre Wegmans? I think Wegmans united everybody. There was a bit of a rift between the American Niagara Falls and the Canadian Niagara Falls at one point.

    I'm not sure we should expand this discussion to cross-border disputes until we nail down the matters at hand.

    So if everything west of the western-most Stewart's isn't Upstate, what kind of lawless region is it? Is it even New York at that point or is it all just Buffalo-south or Erie-east?

    this is the dividing line. Westchester is Westchester. Anything north of that is upstate. As someone who grew up in the city, I know that this is the correct answer.

    Rockland County is really the only place up for debate, but most of us are mostly unaware that it even exists, so maybe we don't have to debate it.

    and maybe folks in Western NY don't want to be called upstate, but to someone from the city, you're either in the city, in one of the outer boroughs, on Long Island, in Westchester, or upstate. End of story.

    Again, with the odd exception of Rockland Cty.

    Rockland has Harriman, and if you can step on a rattler or see a bear, you are upstate.

    I can't argue about the Western border because like most people from NY, I have never been there.

    Buffalo, Canada. Get it right.
    I'd be down to taste test some upstate drunk food.

    In related news I see they just opened an Anchor Bar in a suburb of Atlanta, so maybe Upstate is more of a state of mind rather than a place?

    I think the better question is; where does downstate NY start?

    I'm in the ROC and we like it that way. Stay the fuck out of Western NYS. There's nothing to see here. But Buffalo is fine. You can go there as long as you stay west of Batavia.

    What a confusing mess.

    Is there another state that's this confusing?
