Different folks' have very different definitions of what "upstate New York" means - to some it's anything north of Westchester County, to others, it's Syracuse, Watertown and Buffalo. Sonce that covers a LOT of ground, could you be a little more specific as to where you are? Maybe a list of counties, or near to a city?
