Any place above Westchester, NY is considered upstate NY. Upstate New Yorkers usually have to answer questions like " Do you have a New York accent?"," Is it crowded there?","Do you live on 5th Avenue?"
The answers to all of these are NO! lol New York has a lot more to offer than just the city. Ever considered that ya punk?!
Me: Hey Im from New York
You: OMG U are? Is it crowded there?
