It's funny - when I was growing up we got the Daily News and the New York Post (my mom loves rags apparently) and in the movie listings it always had our movie theaters listed under "Upstate New York" listings. Until I went to college in Syracuse I thought Potown was Upstate New York.
I always got a chuckle over this topic when I lived there. It seems that people in the NYC area almost consider anything north of the boroughs to be "upstate". For me, I think of upstate being the area between Albany and the St Lawrence Seaway, and from Rouses Point over to Watertown or so. I'm sure you could ask 100 New Yorkers to define "upstate" and you'd get 100 different answers.
