    You could tell you were getting closer to Rochester when the empty beer cans on the side of the road changed from Budweiser to Genesee.

    Y’all are confusing the upstate/downstate line with the regional subdivisions.....

    This here is the upstate and downstate line of demarcation.

    So it's a far cry from the original version?

    That last one is actually helpful, however even it splits Upstate into several N/S lines.

    Snowfall and Recreation are nice, however I think I'd like one that is food based too.

    The prosperous area looks like Ithaca.

    I like how the NY map only includes Bills Mafia; everyone knows the Giants and the Jets (Just End the Season!) are Jersey teams.

    Genny wasn't as popular in Buffalo, that's more Labatt and Molson country. When I moved to ROC, it was Genny and Honey Brown on repeat!

    pretty much the rest of the state outside of that area is a waste land of non intellects and conservatives

    So I KQ'd Ithaca...

    https://www.bestplaces.net/economy/city/new_york/ithaca
    - The average income of a Ithaca resident is $16,718 a year. The US average is $28,555 a year.
    - The Median household income of a Ithaca resident is $30,318 a year. The US average is $53,482 a year.

    Are they counting the incomes of the student's parents to get to the prosperous category?

    ...something doesn't compute

    So that's the rub. Folks in NYC don't care about the regional divisions, to those small minded folks it's all upstate. The folks outside NYC care a great deal and take umbrage at being lumped into one. The only reason I feel like I care is that someone who had never left their block in the Bronx asked me where Vermont was and if it was somewhere upstate. So I am on the side of the regional folks. And I ran into someone from Poughkeepsie who thought upstate ENDED in Dutchess county. Which confused the heck out of me.

    It does, the 8th map. There are only 3 teams to choose from in NYS.

    When I lived in Saratoga, it was pretty much 50/50 Yankees/Sox. There was a sports bar down the street that had one giant screen on each a lot of nights. It's just not NY state teams.
