Stupid list IMO. It's full of Putnam, Dutchess and Orange County towns. Which I would absolutely not call "upstate" at all, that whole area has pretty much been swallowed into the NYC Metro area. It's no shock or secret that people from these areas are making the long haul every day to jobs in Westchester and The City. It'd be a much more interesting/informative list if they excluded city/Westchester commutes, or at least moved the "upstate" line to somewhere a bit more appropriate (calling Brewster and Mahopac "upstate"? Seriously?)

If you're a life long New Yorker (from NYC), Mahopac and Brewster will "feel" like Upstate. (of course, I know "it's not").
