Well you can't stop me.

But seriously, the mentality that everyone I know has, including myself, is that there are pretty much three sections of NY: NYC, Long Island, Upstate. If we want to get technical, they will split Upstate with Western NY.

Fair enough. My town is 3 minutes from the Jersey border, that's why we get defensive.

It's funny though, you ask people in my area and we all consider Albany to be the upstate divider.

Washington Heights/Harlem/Inwood are cheaper than most places in Brooklyn/Queens.

Even to me, anything north of NYC is upstate.

NYC is the focus. Which means, even technically Yonkers, as blasphemous as it sounds, which is a part of Westchester, is Upstate.

Upstate is everything in relation to the state outside NYC, more specifically, north.

For real. I think no one wants to be considered from "that other part" of NY, but in reality, they are.

No, but rent stabilization/rent control make for some pretty good deals. The trick is finding one of them. And yeah, the people paying $28 have been in there since well before 1970.

So can anyone get this, or is the rent raised once the tenant who lived there since before 1970 moves out?

Just doesn't make sense how about 90%, estimated, of the state could be considered upstate.

Well 42% of people living in NYS live in that 10% of NYS.

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.

Edit #3 - Instead of doing math myself, since Wikipedia gives the numbers, NYC has a population density of 27,243/sq mi. NYS overall has 412/sq mi.

I've lived in Westchester for 20 years but spent my first 11 years in Nassau County.

Wetchester is not upstate. I can get to the Garden quicker than most people from LI.

Upstate starts once you keep going up I87 past Rockland County around the New Paltz/Poughkipsie Area.

I gave 10% to be on the safe side, but figured it was much lower.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upstate_New_York

Quote:
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.
Quote:
Another usage of the term "Upstate" excludes only New York City and Long Island.
But, I am going to go by this sentance.

Quote:
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.

There's actually a Museum in Albany dedicated to the New York Metropolitan Area (underneath the Egg shaped theater by the Governor's building for those who know what I'm talking about).

LI/NYC/Westchester are all included in that definition.

I worked in Rockland County on Route 59 this summer (Rockland Hyundai), that **** is definitely not up-state. It took me an hour to get there in the morning, taking the Hutch to the Cross County, and going over the Tappanzee. It was painless.

Yeah, I saw after I posted. But does population really define that 99% of the state is considered upstate?

Edit: Forgot Long Island, so 96% or whatever the number would be.

Well when almost half of the state's population is within barely 1% of NYS, I wouldn't think it's that ridiculous.

Yeah, they are included in the NYC Metro Area. Part of New Jersey and Connecticut is too. That doesn't mean they are part of Downstate NY.
