Wow! What a very articulate post. I find little comparison between the way of life in Florida to the way of life in UNY. UNY has a lot of history, Battle of Saratoga, War of 1812, Erie Canal, etc. It is true that UNY is the benefactor of NYC and I do not think anyone denies that, but to say "those are the activity places not like upstate" is kind of naive at best. Poughkeepsie is in the Hudson Valley and really you can not beat that area. I was talking to some soldiers who I was training with about a month ago who were from Poughkeepsie and they said they loved it there. From what I am told it is considered the farest point north in the NYC metro. area in NYS. You close enough to the city, but it's only an advantage if you use it. Just like living on LI.
