I think water boundaries are the most forgotten. In New York's case, I think the border with Rhode Island is the least known. But even moreso, I think the water boundary between Pennsylvania and Ontario takes the cake.

Despite being from New Jersey I rarely hear about anything happening on the New York-Pennsylvania order. Maybe this is because my concept of New York is so NYC-centric.

VA and TN is forgotten. It always seemed interesting/odd to think that I was two states away from Tennessee.

OK and NM
IN and MI (sorta)

There's a spot in Stonington, Connecticut, where you can stand and see both New York (Fishers Island) and Rhode Island (Westerly).

Oklahoma's borders with New Mexico, Colorado, and Missouri have always seemed peculiar to me.

Not a border, but I think it's a bit crazy there's only one bridge over the Mississippi River from Illinois basically all the way down to the Mississippi border.

North Carolina and Georgia. It seems like you should have to go through South Carolina first to get to Georgia from NC, and across most of the state you do, but in the western part of NC, you go straight to Georgia.

Oklahoma and Colorado deserves mention, IMO.
