    No, no. It's much more fun to sprinkle this discussion throughout unrelated threads.

    Although it does not help to establish a defined area.

    Listen up assholes. Stay out of western NYS. That means anywhere past the Orange Dome. We like it quiet over here.

    What do you define as a commute? I mean in 1.5 hours and a cheap flight, pre-covid I worked in NYC all the time and returned the same day. Many times beating my co-workers home who lived in LI and NJ. Does this mean your theory of NYC extends the entirety of the eastern seaboard is correct?

    Benny, you know we can't take your input seriously since you include Washington DC as part of the NYC metro, right?

    Maybe you could help us nail down the headwaters of the Genny Cream?

    I don't make the rules, it's just geography.

    I'm with otzi on this.

    Is there any other state with this issue?

    Btw, how does one do an umlaut on a US keyboard?

    I noticed the owner of Tiz The Law isolated himself Upstate to watch his horse win the Belmont this weekend.

    The horse itself is from Hudson, New York which I believe is far enough north to be Upstate.

    This map poses more questions than it answers.

    While you guys are figuring out the southern border of Upstate, anyone care to opine on where the western border is?

    The map above isn't very instructive.

    Batavia area. Don't try and lump ROC and Buffalo together.

    Oswego NY is as far west as the Stewart's empire stretches, so there is your answer.
