In reference to the city, let's just say that you know you're from there if any of the following apply to you:
You say "the city" and expect everyone to know that this means Manhattan.
You have never been to the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building.
You can get into a four-hour argument about how to get from Columbus Circle to Battery Park at 3:30 on the Friday before a long weekend, but can�t find Wisconsin on a map.
Hookers and the homeless are invisible.
The subway makes sense.
You believe that being able to swear at people in their own language makes you multi-lingual.
You've considered stabbing someone just for saying "The Big Apple".
The most frequently used part of your car is the horn.
You call an 8' x 10' plot of patchy grass a yard.
You consider Westchester "upstate".
You think Central Park is "nature."
You see nothing odd about the speed of an auctioneer's speaking.
You're paying $1,200 for a studio the size of a walk-in closet and you think it's a "steal."
You've been to New Jersey twice and got hopelessly lost both times.
You pay more each month to park your car than most people in the U.S. pay in rent.
You haven't seen more than twelve stars in the night sky since you went away to camp as a kid.
You go to dinner at 9 and head out to the clubs when most Americans are heading to bed.
Your closet is filled with black clothes.
You haven't heard the sound of true absolute silence since the 80s, and when you did, it terrified you.
You pay $5 without blinking for a beer that cost the bar 28 cents.
All of these people who call Rockland "upstate nowheresville" and Westchester "hip and bustling" downstate have obviously never been to Rockland. They have just driven through it on the NYS Thruway and pass it off as something it really isn't without actually seeing it. It's culturally no different from the other suburbs, and its no farther away from NYC, so stop badmouthing before you've actually seen it. In addition, Rockland's median household income in 2003 was higher than that of Westchester, Nassau, or Suffolk (7th in the nation), so calling it 2nd class is wrong.
"Hmm let's see I live in Tarrytown, which is in awesome downstate NY. But that Nyack place which is 3 miles due west from here and the same distance from NYC as me is wayyyy upstate. I think it's right next to Canada"
-Doesn't make sense
Town in Rockland County. AKA "Jew City". Middle schoolers hang out at Town, high schoolers you will never see, and nobody cares about the elementary kids. Northern New City consists of the Jappy Jewish kids, In the middle are the middle class (except for new city gardens and the condos, where all the Mexicans live), and southern new city where people that go to south live. Everyone in New City wears Abercrombie or normal attire, and anyone that is different will get made fun of. The Japs everyone HATES, they just don't know it. They live in huge houses, have a million other jap friends, spend summers in expensive camps, and wear rolling stones shirts. FAIL. Average Jap: Sow Lows, Messy Bun, and Northface jacket or batmitzfah sweatshirt. Their names are usually Nicole, Amanda, Jennifer, Jessica, Allison, Marissa, Samantha, Ect. Boy Japs are losers. They have such rich families but do crack and are complete slackers. They think they are so "ghetto". Japs in New City are hated immensely. Some cool kids live in New City, But only %5 of the population. This all sounds so stereotypical, but that's what New City is based upon. Stereotyping. The end.

Goth Kid: Damn new city Jap.
The 845 area code, used to identify yourself and estinguish yourself as a Hudson Valley/Westchester Resident.

Man 2: I'm from the 845

The people here are stuck up, rich, and constipated. You will find a lot of devout christians and a lot of crazy republicans. It will take a lot of time to find the kind, understanding, smart people here in Westchester. Let's start with Briarcliff Manor. Briarcliff manor is filled with jocks that can finish a pass but not a sentence, girls that know all the different styles of clothing but can't finish an additon problem.
Chappaqua is considered the ghetto of Westchester. Usually the kids here are more ready for the outside world rather than the Briarcliff kids.
Sleepy Hollow is a surreal place, where the white kids are constant war with the Hispanic kids. Drugs are smoked/injected less than 30 feet from the school. They are all rich and buy designer shoes every week.
Girls in general are BITCHES. You can recognize a Westchester Girl by their advertising of their own clothes on their clothes, if that even makes sense. They generally wear Abercrombie
/Juicy/Hollister, while exposing small portions of their torso. They talk with a long island accent and drag out their consonants.
Boys act 'Gangsta
' and wear their pants on their knees. They think they're black and listen to rap at maximum volume on their Beats headphones. They generally flirt with girls using body contact and smell of sweat and puke, probably from an overdose of non-prescription drugs.
