I kind see what you are getting at, because I feel the same way about the I-81 corridor in VA. It depends on where you are in the state, but it is generally alright. We even have some "country" Black folk on NY too.

I wasn't thinking that, but I know what you mean. I was thinking more of Lyons, Clyde, Sodus, LeRoy, Caledonia, Albion, Medina, Fallsburg, Liberty, Monticello, Peterboro, Prattsburgh and some other places.

I have lived in both NC and NY, so my decision is informed. I chose New York. For me, New York has everything you could ask for. It depends on what you really like. I love winter, and North Carolina doesn't cut it for me at all. I like both NYC and upstate. It's a good mix, plus there several good sized cities scattered throughout upstate as well. It's close to other major areas. New York's education is better than NC's. New York is GORGEOUS, and even if it didn't have NYC, it would have still gotten my vote. The City is just the icing on the cake.
I don't really like southern culture, but that's just me.

I like North Carolina but I like New York state even more! So I voted New York state.

The best areas of North Carolina

Charlotte
Asheville
Outer Banks
The western parts of North Carolina in the Appalachian mountain range
Raleigh Durham-Winston Salem

The best areas of New York state

New York City!
The hudson valley towns between Albany and New York City
The southern coastline, beaches, and beach towns of Long Island
Areas of the Catskill and Adirondack mountain range
Ithaca
Binghamton

Cosign.

Algreen, Rochester-Buffalo-Syracuse aren't country at all (in my opinion anyway). Despite living in those 3 cities with her family, my mom and em' would always claim Sodus (then Rochester & Buffalo. Syracuse would only come up if they get in depth in their childhood conversations). Yeah, they always said that they (relatives and 1 parent) mostly grew up/lived in the country for half the year. Anything bigger than Rochester & Buffalo is overwhelming to my family on that side, lol.

Well I wasn't really talking about the cities themselves, but that some blacks I've seen from Rochester seemed a bit "country". People from upstate NY in general seem to be a lot more laid back than those from downstate.
