A town in extreme upstate New York that is pretty much the only place for activity in that whole area. Very cold in the winter.
I went up north towards Quebec; all of interest along the way was in the city of Plattsburgh.

let's just say that without the college, there wouldn't be a city. the winters are long, freezing and full of parking bans. the city cops pretend like they are nypd. they pull over everyone and anyone and treat them like they are some kind of drug dealer wanted in 20 states...i mean after all, they were going 33 in a 30. The summer brings out all the local townies and farmers, and they dress for the occasion! They all head down to the super walmart for some fun.
If you must go to Plattsburgh, bring a camera..you may be lucky enough to see Champ, the sea monster of Lake Champlain..dun dun duuuun!

Sleepy town in upstate New York only going ons are the occasional college party, meth lab busts, or walking around the mall. For fun many teenage residents go to Montreal to drink or walk the streets of the "Burgh" for hours loathing their own existence. Due to the crippling bored found here drug use and alcoholism of all those who are above the age of 12 is very high and considered the favorite pastime of the city. Also winters are cold the weather men are treated like gods and there is a hatred of all things french canadian that can only be compared to south's hatred of freed slaves after reconstruction.
I need to get out of Plattsburgh.

A wonderful little town in picturesque northern NY. In the late 70s to early 80s known as the number one place to find the first exploded USSR nuclear warhead. Plattsburgh is now, as then, known to be a very safe and pleasant town. Bordered on the east by the sixth great lake, Lake Champlain, and on the west and south by the Adirondack mountains, Plattsburgh boasts both water sports and skiing within the range of a motorcycle's reserve fuel. All in all, a great city to raise a family.

We stopped to get gas in Plattsburgh before we hit the border.
