I TOTALLY understand that! I don't hunk to actually confuse myself! I sometimes say I am from the area that's gets all the lake effect snow near Syracuse! That sometimes helps!

Selkirk is beautiful! We actually go to Southwicks each summer because we like the beach there.

People from Utica to Buffalo call themselves from Central New York
People from the Adirondacks are from Upstate
Though all people north of NYC think they are from Upstate.. not.
I live near Mexico ME and as you are in the lake effect area.. ( got snow this weekend?) how will you deal with winter in your trailer..?

We plan on covering it and leaving it next to the garage. Shoveling the snow off when we get lots of it.... I am hoping that is good enough. Wish I owned a nice big barn to store it in!

NY is New York City. EVERYTHING else is upstate.

Buffalo is within one of the 8 counties that comprise "Western NY", but its still upstate.

Lake George could be called "Northern NY", but its still upstate.

I just had dealings with the electric company that covers southern NY, near the PA line. It also covers Buffalo. That territory is called "Upstate NY.
