This is how I would define Australia:

I've never been, so I know what I am talking about.

Besides repeating what everyone else has said, it's also bizarre that you randomly introduce a region that has only to do with one ethnicity.

If a region has a distinct cultural identity, it will create and perpetuate itself. The entire premise of this thread is incredibly forced.

There are far more complexities within the regions of a 300+ million country such as the US that is being oversimplified in the post...quite a lot more complex than that isolated small-market corner of the world "Australia"- less ppl than Texas btw

I'm legitimately wondering here, when you say you've been to New Jersey, do you mean outside of Newark Airport and the route you took to NYC? Or did you actually fly into NJ with the intention of exploring NJ?

Because your answer to this question could explain a lot of your slightly off perceptions of the US.

Haha, no we absolutely don't! There's everything from studio apartments in the city to mansions in NJ, CT, and parts of NY, even the city! Much diversity. I don't think the OP realizes how quite diverse the US is. I mean to give HISPANICS a whole region? Seriously? What about the other million ethnicities you find here? I mean the NY metro region is like a mini Italy. NY, NJ, and CT, in that order, have the most Italian Americans in the whole country.

Ahh, so off base. I'm not being mean because he's foreign - I can't even pretend to know about Australia, this guy's got confidence here - he just needs to do a little more visiting I think.

Ok. Just bring my name into a thread I had nothing to do with. Wow.

I know that there are different regions of NY. Just, to us in the metro area, anything above the boundaries of the metro area is upstate because it's vastly afferent from the city and its surrounding areas. It's not just me you can call out. It's the 20+ million people who live in the New York metro area, thank you very much.

Tough crowd.

Yeah, so many Hispanics in "Middle America."




Schenectady and Utica are the Little Italys of Upstate.
