    NYC is good for a visit but no way I live there. Western NY is awesome for fishing but no way I live there year because of the winters.

    Go Yankees!!

    Upstate NY is great. We go up there every summer...not sure about this year, though.

    NYC is cool...under normal circumstances.

    My wife if from northern NY. NY is a beautiful state! We like to go visit relatives in the Adirondack Mountains when we can. Lake Placid and Saranac Lake are really cool towns. And when it is 100 degrees broiling hot and humid here in the south, it 82 degrees and low humidity up there. The lake and river water is clear and cold. The winters are brutal but man, I’d love to get a place on a lake or river up there.

    Downside - taxes are really high in NY and the cars rust out pretty quickly up there. And in some places, the mosquitoes can stand flat footed and fuck turkeys

    My brother lives in Rotterdam, a town just outside Schenectady to the west and about 20 minutes west of Albany.

    You'd be amazed how much better it gets leaving one town and going to another. Rotterdam for the most part is really nice. Schenectady proper is a hellhole. Albany is even worse.

    NYC is the best city I've been to, and I have been to a lot.

    Upstate New York is gorgeous.

    I would love to live there for a year. We just love visiting, but I'll be damned if I'll pay what that city demands. We try and go once a year, this year will be missed, of course.

    I went to college near the city - would take the train down occasionally (and the last semester, four out of five days a week). Loved it. So many record stores I would pass between Grand Central and the radio station on Broadway. Then in the late '80s/early '90s there was the towing incident and just a general sense of being "over it" as there were a slew of shows I watched on TV and it seemed most of them were set in NYC as if it was the only place on earth. Several years ago, I had to go to one of our hotels in New Jersey and on an off day took the train over to the city and just walking those streets again, even without all of the record stores - was magic.

    But the baseball team in the Bronx can go suck a fat one!

    NYC was a fucking trip in the mid 80's, when i'd go.
    And i still love it today.

    NYC is like "Let it bleed."
    CA is like "Rumours."

    Both are great, but fit different kinds of folks in different ways.
