Had no idea.

Generally speaking, the split Upstate (and I say that as someone born and raised here) is hard to determine.

I would honestly have to say Syracuse. I know Utica is primarily Rangers fans, followed with Devils and Sabres. Albany I know is Rangers too, Devils affiliate, but theyre also closer to Boston and Montreal, and I think even the Boston sports station was/is there too. No idea.

Its just hilarious to me that Albany gets the Sabres feed over everything else if theres a conflict, when in actuality, it should be getting like 5 other teams first.

In my experiences, this is pretty accurate for Upstate NY.

Most of the New York NHLers come from up here, and obviously the climate here compared to downstate is more suitable for pond hockey, etc. We're also closer to Canada so we get CKWS.

The HS's Upstate take hockey very seriously. New Hartford (which is where I currently live now but raised in Utica) won the state championship I think twice recently.

I was born in Nassau and my entire family is from the city/island. I grew up mostly in PA and now live in Seattle.

One of the best decision I ever made was playing tons of old NHL games as the Rangers because my Uncle is/was a big Islanders fan . Thank goodness he liked the Islanders or else...

Suffolk County. I used to go to LI Ducks games in Commack for some real entertainment before I was old enough to travel to Manhattan with my friends

Isn't everything north of the Bronx upstate? If not, it doesn't make a difference to the poll. For the poll, I'm considering it upstate.

Where I live, Devils fans outnumber us rather greatly.

Elmira NY about an hour north of Binghamton. My daughter goes to Suny Binghamton and the Rangers use to have their farm team there. For those who don't know better--we used to have WOR with Bill Chadwick and Jim Gordon back in the 70's. That was channel 7. Wpix--channel 6 carried the Yankees. WOR was good for 30-35 Rangers away games per year. The rest I would try to catch on WNBC radio broadcast with Marv Albert (best hockey announcer ever) and color man Sal Messina. We didn't have Buffalo Sabres anything. The older hockey fans here anyway are mostly Rangers fans. The Sabres fans will tend to be 40 or younger. First time I saw the Rangers in person was in 1982 against the Capitals--we won. By the way ten years ago or so I was playing in a roller hockey league in Corning NY and one of the teams (and they were mostly kids) all had Rangers jerseys.

on an Y axis, it's exactly the same as Westchester, and is the primary border to NJ.

Not upstate.

Westchester is upstate as well.

According to Wikipedia, there is no definite boundary that separates upstate from downstate.

Since there is no official boundary, I guess anyone could make it wherever, but if you ask anyone from NYC, 99% of them will tell you that north of the Bronx is upstate.

There is a forum called citydata.com that will debate with you that its not til theyre blue in the face. Especially the NYC posters on there all say Westchester isnt Upstate and that most NYCers say it.

Ugh I hate when Westchester is referred to as upstate. Sure it's north of the city, but places like Albany are upstate.

Internet debates don't actually make you blue in the face. Carpal tunnel maybe.

I'm looking at that forum and there's a person who says he's from Rockland County and he even considered upstate.

Whatever you think upstate is, I'm the one who created the poll, and I consider it upstate. Everyone I know considers everything north of NYC (and in NYS) upstate.
