Response to 49 Things People From Upstate New York Love:
The reason people are disappointed when you say you are from upstate NY is that New York City is just more interesting. NYC is a setting in books, movies and TV shows. It’s full of popular culture as well as world famous museums, concert halls, and people flock there from all over the globe (every third person is an expat!). Upstate New York has leaves that change colors, and a line of convenience stores called Stewarts.
