but its an economic wasteland

And do you suppose that astronomical taxes have anything to do with that? If you're a business owner are you going to go to a state which plunders the fruits of your labor and then stifles you in regulations, or are you going to go to a more business friendly venue where you're not supporint as many parasitical state employees?

“And do you suppose that astronomical taxes have anything to do with that?”

Property/School taxes are not “astronomical” in upstate NY.

We pay less tha $900 per year combined. Nice house and 7 acres of Sugar Maples with year-round creek is paid in full. We’re surrounded by 1700 acres of state land abundant with deer, turkeys, grouse and bear. I can shoot anytime I want and don’t have the state breathing down my neck. Our crime rate is very low, probably due to the fact that everyone owns at least a dozen guns.

Yes, we do have long winters and like rbg81 says, there is little opportunity.

NYS ranks 8th on the FR scoreboard for donations (just below AZ and above GA, I might add). Must be all those NYC liberals donating, huh?

Upstate NY is not NYC
