ALL of rural America is creepy and ominous, regardless of region. But I guess that's what makes rural America so darn interesting.

Anything bigger than Rochester & Buffalo is overwhelming to my family on that side, lol.
Yeah, Sodus and Lyons are nice, country towns that have always had their share of Black folks. Someone from a small Southern town would fit in fine there. A lot of people worked in the Apple orchards and vineyards close by. Shoot, Geneva is big enough to some of the people in that area.

Also, Upstate NYers are more laid back.

Well, maybe to some people but not to me. There's just this warmness and charm that emits from the southern countryside. Maybe it's just the abundance of sunshine, who knows.

Despite being a native of NY I've got to say NC here. It's my favorite southern state. Great mountains, great beaches, a few interesting places in between, too.

Actually, Upstate NY and NC are about the same in many aspects. When I say Upstate NY, I mean north of Rockland and Westchester Counties. There is a poll on that already on here.

I really don't care for the cities of NC, rather boring and vanilla. However I LOVE the NC coastline! I think the Outer Banks have better beaches than the Northeast. I think the Carolinas have equally attractive mountains. New York gets an edge for having better urban areas, more lakes (and more appealing fresh water recreation), Finger Lakes & Ithaca gorges and waterfalls, and Niagara Falls. But to live, well I'm growing less tolerant of long and cold winters. So since this thread is based on personal preferences the warmer climate alone in NC wiins out for me.
