New York State



Population Density 2010,notice dark green is lowest density, red highest (couldn't find more recent)

1) The Democratic Party dominates politics in NY state but if New York City were cut from New York state, would New York state be a red state? - consider the population density within the state by county excluding NYC

Sixty-eight percent of registered voters in New York Coty are Democrats. There are pockets of Republican strength in Staten Island, and some sections of Brooklyn and Queens.
2) What is your estimate of the percentage of Democrats compared to Republicans of regular members in the City-Data New York City forum ?

I've made it to the Catskills once

NYS north of White Plains is foreign to me

But I know it's rural

For those who drive up from nyc to Niagara Falls via Buffalo, there is a lot of nothingness out there. There is also the drive to Plattsburgh or Ithaca to see the wilderness

Moved from Nassau County to Hamburg ( south of Buffalo) 5 years ago and I dont feel like I'm missing much. Live in a safe community with good schools, decent restaurants, low traffic, affordable housing prices and reasonable property taxes ( for New York State). I wouldn't say by any stretch that there is "nothing here". That is a perception that downstaters have that never made sense to me. I have hiking, skiing, the beach, professional sports, theater, casinos, museums, etc all within a 30 minute drive of my house. The only real negative here is the winters, which I'm not going to sugarcoat. However that's what February trips to Florida are for. Come on up and explore the "nothing" up here. There are definitely some hidden gems.

Upstate NY is nowhere near being all rural.

It's more like a web of small cities and their suburbs, with true rural areas filling the gaps.

And I don't think it would be an actual red state, more like a purple state.
