A state in the United States thats money is sucked away from upper NY by a certain city sticking off some island.
NYC raised the tolls at the thruway even though they don't even use them.

Sen. Hillary Clinton loves to use Upstate New York to gain money for herself and practice for when she's in the white house.

1.) The largest city in the United States. Popular for tourism and boasts good food, low crime rates, and close proximity to other cities such as Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington, D.C.

2.) A state anyone who doesn't live there forgets that it exists. Residents of Upstate New York will have to clarify that they don't live in the city when they say "New York".

Person wearing "I Heart NY" shirt: I just went to New York, it's such a great city!


Person: Where are you from?
Upstate NY resident: New York.
Person: The city, right?
Upstate NY resident: No, I live upstate.
Person: Oh.

An amazing state with more than just the city. Upstate new york does not include

longisland. It is a farming region of new york. Has beautiful scenery,

waterfalls, streams, rivers, ect. New york is the home of the real bagels and

real(new york style) pizza. It is also home of the new york coney island dog.

Has a strong dutch, italian, greek ancestry. Uses the word wicked. Has high

taxes is a expensive and ritzy area. And is beautiful. Yes there are quite a few

rude and uncivilized people. Is not nearly as racist as southern states(TEXAS).

Is very interested in fashion and keeping themselves looking nice.
I moved from new york to texas and was creeped out by their hospitality.
I want to flip off everyone that cuts me off becaus im from new york.
I hate southern states where they marry their sisters and cousins.
I say wicked.
Happy that when i moved back i was flipped off when i cut someone off.

The epitome of a city. i.e lots of people crammed into a small space, all of whom are competing to kill, rob, maim, eat each other.yes, i have been there. and it made my asthma worse. How many people do you see wearing a " i love Asthma" t-shirt.
A good a reason as any to smash a jumbo jet into a tower.
"New York, New York. So good they hit it twice...with airplanes laden with aviation fuel"

New York is a city in the north eastern region of the United States. It is often described as a melting pot. This makes New York sound like a lot of fun. But, when you are inside the melting pot, the situation seems less pleasant. That's because you are being melted.
You can be victimized by a wide variety of cultures in New York.

There's a New York in England, too!

People keep calling me dumb for saying that there is. But seriously, go to wiki and check for yourself! I'm not dumb!

Go to Wikipedia and type this in after .org : /wiki/New_York,_Tyne_and_Wear
Me: ''There's a New York in England, too!''
Other person: ''How dumb can you be? There's no New York in England! Do you mean York? Stupid.''
Me: ''NO! Go check Wikipedia! I'm not dumb!
Other person after checking Wikipedia: ''Oh, I'm sorry, you were right!''

Most people recognize the state because it is home to Manhattan. Life in New York (anywhere underneath upstate at least) is truly the fast life. New York definitely takes the prize for having the best Italian food, the best bagels, the most diversity, and the best fashion. However, just like any other state, New York has it's downsides too. The taxes are quite high, the quality of living is going downhill, and people tend to be too caught up with material things. I was born and raised in Long Island, New York and have experienced things there that I would have never experienced anywhere else. Also, it is true that many Long Islanders have an accent, (we pronounce "dog" like "dawg") but we can't help it! With that said, it is an awesome place to visit, but not to live (hence why I no longer live there). Many (not all) New Yorkers tend to drive aggressively. To all of the people that hate on New York, keep it to yourselves. To all of the people that gloat about how New Yorkers are better than everyone else, keep that to yourselves too. All in all, VISIT New York every once in a while, have the time of your life, and then go back home!
Boy, I sure am proud to be from New York, but I would never want to live there!
