Boston has an entire tourist industry built around its history. There's no reason WNY, Central NY, Rochester, Syracuse, etc couldn't do the same. Upstate NY was pretty much the home to the beginning of the expansion and prosperity in America outside of the colonies and after the Revolutionary war. It has so much history. We need to sell that better!

Yeah, there is so much history up here that even long time residents don't even know about, that could be used for tourism. What makes it more interesting is that the history can appeal to a wide range of people. Even Revolutionary War history is present in the Saratoga area and people may not realize that Albany is one of the oldest cities in the country. Things like that should be used to promote areas across the state and is kind of why I post the way I do, actually.

It appears that all, except for 2 metro areas in the state have experienced job growth within the past year: Table 3. Employees on nonfarm payrolls by state and metropolitan area

These are the most recent numbers, if I'm not mistaken.
