Any part of the New York State aside from the five boroughs of New York City, which are, in order of importance: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island.

Nobody gives a flying fuck if you live "near The City"; Long Island, Westchester County, Rockland County, Orange County, Dutchess County, Albany, and the like are all part of Upstate New York State.
Massapequa is Upstate New York.
Riverheads is Upstate New York.
Nyack City is Upstate New York.
New Rochelle is Upstate New York.
Watertown is Upstate New York.
Buffalo is Upstate New York.
The Oysterbay is Upstate New York.

Anything north of White Plains.
People who live above White Plains are obese toothless hicks who live in a boring provincial area and have never seen the lights of the big city.

Noun. A place that isn't NYC and isn't downstate wigger-town. Filled with Hicks and half-witted douchebags who'd rather ride their "sleds" than have a nice chat about theories or do a crossword puzzle.
Me : *Pant, Pant, Pant*
Bro : "Hey, What happened?"
Me : "I said something bad about their tractors and *sleds* and all the sudden they started chasing me."
Bro : "Well, what do you exect, we're in Hicktown, UPSTATE NEW YORK."

Upstate is a place where you have to drive your pickup 20 miles to buy a Sears, Roebuck suit or Gingham dress at a local Walmart. Upstate is sterile, it's a fucking joke.
