I am one of those happy to be called an upstater and I love living in the rolling hills of the Southern Tier. The links in this section will be of use primarily to fellow upstaters and to those traveling in the area. If anyone else is helped by them that’s great, but I’d be the first to concede this section has a narrow focus. I define upstate New York as all the counties north of the New York-Pennsylvania border (roughly 42 degrees latitude). Since there is no official designation, no one can argue with me about this, but if you are interested in a more thorough treatment of the subject, check out the wikipedia article on the subject.
