Could not agree more. Upstate New York is very small town like, more akin to New England, where Buffalo and Rochester are more akin to some of the rust belt cities, Toledo, Cleveland, Pittsurgh, etc. I cannot think of many states that have so many differences in state as New York does.

Back in the 70's, the thinking was that Syracuse was going to boom into a semi-major metro. The thinking was that the NYC fleers would still want to live in New York State.

That never happened!

I'm not sure how these numbers were calculated, but if it was measured using the change in housing units built/sold then that may explain why Miami may look like it is growing so much. I'm not saying that this is the case because I don't know enough about it, but I do know there are a lot of international investors swooping in and picking up cheaper condo units in the Miami area, post-bubble. It also could just be immigration and/or migration patterns to warmer climates...who knows?

The poster in question isnt doing the city justice. Ive spent time in Indy and its a nice place. But whenever a poster gets obnoxious like that and tries to throw Indy (or any city) into every conversation, there is backlash.
