This map might help...

I'm from Rouses Point and work in Plattsburgh. It's a short walk from my driveway to Canada or Vermont. You aren't in Upstate New York just because you're North of New York City.

Love that map!! I spent about a year in "Upstate NY", about 35 miles north of Lake George and 80 miles south of Lake Placid. Was the COLDEST winter I've been through in my entire LIFE, with about 2 weeks when the temps did not rise above -50F (YES, that is a NEGATIVE FIVE ZERO) and there were a couple days when with the wind chill it was down to -100F!!! I NEVER want to deal with temps like that EVER again!!!

I was born in Troy, but grew up in Buffalo. Family moved me to Vermont just before I turned 18, then I crossed the lake. Met my wife here, who is also from Buffalo. Complicated family matters keep us up here. If they did not, we would head for the Carolinas or Tennessee. I hate putting my bike away for the winter...
