Top Definition
Rural New Yorkers from any point in the state west of the Adirondacks and Catskills ("Midwest" NY residents, as opposed to NYC residents, Long Island residents, Westchester County residents, and Upstaters)).

Generally referred to by urban New Yorkers as "upstaters", and by southerners as "yankees". Neither of these groups actually has a clue as to who or what ANYBODY is, if they live over 150 miles away from themselves, since they have never been, nor will they ever even attempt to go that far from their own familiar territory because it would be too much like getting out of their comfort zones.
Urban discussion:
"Hey, looka dat Redneck New Yorker fum da Finger Lakes."
"Finger Lakes, what dey be?"
"Dey be upstate summeres, I guess."
"Oh, by da Poconos?"
"Yeah, probly."

"Hey Zeke, looka that yankee redneck!"
