Clinton(a small college town SW of Utica), Brockport(a small village west of Rochester with a state college), Hamilton(home of Colgate University SE of Syracuse and SW of Utica) and perhaps Oneonta(a small city of about 13,000 with 2 colleges) are some other smaller NYS locations that could fit.

The Dunkirk/Fredonia area may fit, but is likely more moderate. Dunkirk elected NY State's first Hispanic/Latino mayor and is about 33% Hispanic and Black out of 14,000 people. Fredonia has a state college and is an adjacent community of about 10,000.

Places such as Hudson, Saugerties, New Paltz, Chatham, Red Hook and Rhinebeck in the Hudson Valley may also work.

The problem with Liberal rural areas is that they are full of RICH people. So those areas tend to be expensive...and really unless your rich....your just trailer trash to them....unless you can keep the landscaping up or do house cleaning.
In my state, overall Dems got 47% and Repubs got 45%. It is so close you would not think that we were a Dem or Repub state.

However looking at counties it is a huge difference.

Counties that are more urban with expensive homes and high taxes are the Dem counties.

Repub counties are rural low cost / low tax counties.

Nice country, but I hated living there. The conservative nature of the Canadian people and insistence on conformity drove me totally nuts.

It didn't work for me since I am socially very liberal and politically very conservative.

It is a great country if you a socially conservative and politically liberal.
