I live in Northwest Arizona, originally from New York City. Have played hockey with several of the Islanders in the past, but was never, ever, not for one day, an Islander fan.

Now play only one contact sport - politics.

I'm from the Bronx originally, and recently moved to Westchester (although I currently go to school in Ann Arbor @ the University of Michigan).

Not a single person I have ever talked to considered Westchester upstate.

That could be because no one from Westchester wants to be considered upstate. People from NYC considers that upstate.

or it's because the idea of considering every single part of a state that isn't the City is silly. Especially Rockland (which runs parallel with NJ at points) and Westchester. and for what it's worth, Rockland is slightly south of Westchester at points.

To me, the northern barriers of Putnam and Orange is the upstate line.

Fair enough. Sometimes I forget there are other islands out there .

No, not really--most people from NYC do not think of Westchester as upstate--Westchester is part of the 'burbs down here. Get up above Poughkeepsie into the upper reaches of Duchess county and Columbia county--that's where most people down here would draw the line.

Well everyone I know considers it upstate. Obviously I don't know most people in NYC so what I said was a bit extreme, but I really never met a person who doesn't consider that upstate.

LOL...I'm an Islander...but it is Prince Edward Island Canada . I did however have the misfortune of growing up with a younger brother who just happened to start cheering for the NYI when they joined the league and stole a couple of Cups from us at a very important stage of my teenage life .

The whole upstate thing is relative. If someplace is north from where you are then you have to go "upstate" to get there so people label it upstate. I grew up in Poughkeepsie which lots of people consider upstate. I don't, but I consider Kingston upstate because it was upstate from where I was. In fact DOWNSTATE Correctional Facility is located near Poughkeepsie due to it's proximity to the NY Metro Area, Poughkeepsie is the last stop on Metro-North's (MTA) Hudson River Line, and local news, CBS, NBC, Fox, etc. is all NYC news so should it really be considered upstate? Go much further than there though and it switches over to local Albany stations. So I would almost say that Poughkeepsie would be the farthest limit, after that you could probably start saying upstate. But maybe I am biased because I grew up there.

Now, you want to talk about "upstate?" I went to school north of syracuse, that was upstate, and cold.

edit*
now you guys are making me homesick.

I have to say, I'm surprised less than 4% of us actually live in Manhattan.

Not trying to be argumentative, but I'm guessing you clearly missed when I said I lived in the Bronx for the majority of my life, unless the Bronx is considered upstate now too.

Nope, I didn't. When you said no one you ever spoke to considered Westchester upstate, I was referring to the people you spoke to who actually live in Westchester.

As a Bronx native no one here considers Westchester upstate. We generally consider Putnam + up as upstate.

FWIW I have no problem with the upstate tag. I like visiting NYC now and again but I'm living where I want to live--and it is a bit cheaper.

I've always considered anything above the Southeast station upstate. It's as far as the trains go without getting a connection. So yeah Putnam and up. Side note I live in Putnam.

Native NYer, grew up on the 17th floor of a hi-rise in Manhattan, went to Binghamton and then Hofstra. Went to Chicago, then Texas, then back east to New Jersey. Then made the big move to Europe, moving to Manchester, England. Lived there for 3 great years and then made another big move to the English countryside and now live the rural lifestyle. I'm a mother****ing country gentleman *****es.

The Rangers have never been on tv there (I dont think) and Sabres fans are pretty diehard.

Utica has gotten MSG/Rangers since the late 60s (says my father). They only started showing the Sabres in Utica on MSG in 2006, so figure that one out. 40+ years vs 6?

Even growing up in Utica and playing youth hockey, pretty much everyone was a Ranger fan. All of us. After that was Devils because of the Utica Devils. Brodeur played here at the Aud (where they filmed Slap Shot). Sabres fans come in at a distant third.

The NHL is trying to play catchup I guess showing the Sabres here.
I live in Buffalo and I'm a Rangers fan. However, I'm originally from Rockland County. Unfortunately I'm the exception to the rule in a sea of Sabres fans. But in my basement with Center Ice and a big screen TV, I'm mentally still just outside of NYC.
