    Maybe this question needs its own thread.
    Heh. Great place to live, shitty neighborhood.

    The Official Argue About Where Upstate NY Is Thread

    Hofbrauhaus in Buffalo is a great space, and it’s rocking. What a great addition to the city.

    Upstate residents loves their beer, German food and live entertainment ! Prost!

    This joker gets it.

    Wife is a Bonnie alum. Southern tier is the very bosom of NY. Some may say it's for pros only.

    The Southern Tier is thankfully still a mostly unknown quantity. It's beautiful, uncrowded and has some of the best and worst markers of Upstate.

    Strange, when I was there we referred to the area as the Southern Tier. They even renamed Rt 17 as the Southern Tier Expressway. Oh well, all I know is it was a beautiful place to spend 4 years in college. Awesome ski town 20 minutes away, all the best weed, 9 hole golf course on campus with $1 cart rentals, some of the best mtn biking I have ever seen accessible right from my doorway, killer camping spots, etc. etc.

    If you have never done a fall drive on Rt 17 (Southern Tier Expressway), you are missing out.

    Not to confuse this any more, but can anyone explain to me why Southern Tier Brewing is in Lakewood,NY on Chautauqua Lake?
    Is Chautauqua Lake in Western NY? It is 45 minutes West of Bonaventure. Seems like if one of the nations best craft breweries thinks they are in the Southern Tier, I am going to trust them. Discuss...

    Where were you in there? I've only barely outnumbered the miles I drove on Rt 17 here in CO even though I've been here as long as in NY

    formerly an ambassador for a few others, but the ski industry is... interesting.
    Fukt: a very small amount of snow.

    The wind hits your car like a ton of bricks down the N-S lake as it steams in from Lake Erie with all that lake effect with it, kicking the 3' of fresh the plows are removing from the bridge straight into the air to the point you can't tell which end is up. You can't stop either cause there's two trucks behind you as well.

    I've never been so happy to feel the other side of a bridge under my tires (still couldn't see).

    fact.
    The southern tier is just Northernmost portion of West Virginia with a good swath of Western PA being North Central WV. But...it is still upstate.

    That is a picture well painted.

    I also remember an 8 hour drive from Olean to Albany during a torrential rain that closes RTE 17 and most of the North South routes that could get me to I90. It was pre Google maps and I will admit I was pretty damned nervous hitting closed road after closed road weaving north. Finally got to 90 and made it through the Mohawk Valley narrow spot about 10 minutes before they closed 90.

    The Southern Tier is dark and desolate and if one listens they hear dueling banjos and if you squints you can see Ned Beatty beside each weathered oak tree or fallen down barn.

    As long as we're playing this game, someone needs to explain why Saranac is brewed in Utica.

    Thanks fellas, I can still see the scene in my mind like it was yesterday. Easily the most scared I've ever been behind the wheel. The bridge turns to the left when heading West and with how deep the snow was and how strong the wind was, all I could think was that I'd hit the massive snowbanks on either side and launch over into the lake and no one would be the wiser given the unequivocal whiteout.

    Something like this happened in Albany once. A dude went missing in the middle of a snow storm, never made it home. In the spring, months later, somebody eventually spotted his car upside down between a couple of elevated highways. Speculation is he went up and over a snowbank like a ramp, then got covered by more snowfall.
