the both literal and figurative armpit of new york state.

the state of new york is shaped like an arm raised at a 90 degree angle from the body. central new york fits into the armpit.
Though some people consider Central New York to be the "heart" of the state, for many reasons, including the smell, it's more like the armpit.
