Popular? I've never heard the term downstate before seeing this article. Is it a thing mainly from people upstate?

Yes, its pretty ubiquitous. Oaxaca dan 23:59, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Original research[edit]

Where are the sources supporting this?

I feel that much of this article appears to be original research. Additionally, this image provides information to readers, but is unsourced and should probably be considered original research as well. --JBC3 (talk) 02:27, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

About half of Suffolk county on Long Island is semi-rural and closer to Rhode Island[edit]

I think that map is inaccurate to some degree. The eastern half of long island is actually not urban at all. It's kindof in the middle of nowhere, similar attitude in culture to smaller places upstate. Also, ALL of Rockland County should be considered part of the NYC metro area because in some ways, it's more urbanized than suffolk (actually parts of rockland are closer to nyc than parts of westchester even. I see there is a little strip of rockland that was not included, which makes absolutely no sense since all of suffolk is included. So yes, it's a great picture, but semi-inaccurate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:34, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
