-The northern part of New York north of Albany and in the Hudson River area. Just saying now, Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester are not upstate. They are in Central-Western New York.
-NOT WESTCHESTER, AND DEFINITELY NOT LONG ISLAND!
And just to clear this up, not all Upstaters are good-for-nothing hicks. Sure, some are, but everywhere has hicks and wierdos. The only reason that a lot of upstaters don't have jobs is because all the jobs left in the 50's, making New York (the state, idiot out-of-staters) the poorest state per capita.
-Upstate is not a crime-ridden slum as several cities, like Port Jervis have displayed to us. People here have manners and common sense.
-A LOT prettier than the city, which is more crime infested and poorer (per capita).
OK, this damn thing keeps erasing my example and telling me to say Upstate New York, even though I DID so now i just said it.
