I maybe forgetting some others, but those come to mind right away. Nyack and some of the Rivertowns in Westchester County come to mind as well.
Places such as Hudson, Beacon and Saugerties may also fit.

Keep Austin Weird definitely came first. I think other cities, including Portland, have followed suit.

I think it's safe to say NYC for NY State.

Specifically parts of Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn

I think people assume that, but people may be surprised by some of the smaller places in the state.

I don't doubt that. NY is a really big state, in both population and physical size.

Edit: My own comment got me curious, so I decided to look it up, and apparently we are actually in the bottom half of States as far as physical size goes. I always thought we were bigger than that. Maybe we just look big compared to the other Northeastern states

¯ \_(ツ)_/¯

Yes, NY State is only 30th in land size, but is 4th in population. I think the way the state is shaped makes it seem like it is a bigger state.
