The provinces. A dowdy, depressed, depressing, crime-ridden shithole that bleeds New York City (ironically the safest big city in America) dry to keep itself afloat. Full of inferiority-complex-addled jackasses who whine about how there's more to this state than the City and act so big because the capital of New York State (Albany) is there. Big friggin' deal. Go move to that sterile NYC clone Toronto if you like it so much, upstaters, and stop thinking you're so great until you can clean up your act and actually be productive.
Okay, so there's more to New York State than the City. No one gives a damn, unless you like nature (big whoop), economic stagnation, and urban blight that's right up there with the Midwest rustbelt, metropolitan Detroit, and eastern Germany. Upstate can go ahead and fall into the Great Lakes.
