Edit - And I'm pretty sure NYC is well under 5% of NYS.

Edit #2 - Doing quick math, I think NYC makes up for 0.9% of NY. I think I made a mistake.
I gave 10% to be on the safe side, but figured it was much lower.

One usage locates the Upstate/Downstate boundary farther north[vague] at the point at which New York City's suburbs segue into its exurbs. This line would place most, but not all, of Westchester and Rockland counties south of the boundary, putting the northwestern edge of Rockland as well as the northernmost quarter of Westchester (such as Peekskill) in Upstate New York.
Another usage of the term "Upstate" excludes only New York City and Long Island.
But, I am going to go by this sentance.

There is no clear or official boundary between Upstate New York and Downstate New York.
Either way, this is pointless to argue as we both, and others, stand by what we consider to be upstate.
