This looks about right. As long as you don't clump ****tercuse in with Rochester and Buffalo, that is the ultimate insult for citizens of either city. I am not sure how much people that are not from Buffalo relaize it, but Buffalonians have way more in common and relate to Canadians much moreso than probably even their fellow New Yorkers. Rags in six!

I'll extend the idea of 3 geographical areas to 5.
Western NY - areas around Rochester and Buffalo
Central NY - areas around Syracuse, Utica and Binghamton
Upstate NY - areas around Albany and Saratoga Springs
Downstate NY - Hudson Valley (Poughkeepsie northern border) through NYC to the tip of LI
North Country - Lake George to Plattsburgh to Watertown (includes Adirondacks)
