A person from Upstate New York. Usually equipped with a Syracuse University t-shirt, a plaid flannel t, Pabst Blue Ribbon or Saranac, and a North Face jacket. Often very angered when you ask them if they're from the City or when Westchester is included as part of Upstate.
Person not from NY: Is that guy Canadian?
Person from NYC: No, he's obviously an Upstater

Simple people, who live north of Albany, NY. They tend to not be the wealthyest, but humble. They also are not stuck up like "downstaters".
