I've lived in Upstate NY my whole life. I love it and can't imagine living anywhere else, but, the taxes are high. The snow usually isn't a big deal we get 3-4 large storms a winter with a foot or more of snow, and right now we're dealing with record cold. The temps aren't the norm tho. There's no way that we could have purchased this farm (log cabin, large very well maintained dairy barn, on a 113 acres) for what we paid for it in any of the New England states. Schools are good, and if you're a good neighbor you'll have good neighors for the most part. The employment outlook is varied from County to County.

I grew up in Broome County, moved to Steuben County, moved again to Oneida/Herkimer County, and I'm back in Broome County now. There are good and bad points to every part of the country.
