I know this is a gun forum but I just want to show you a little bit of where I grew up in upstate NY this is just a little of upstate as I see it. If it were not for NY politics I would move back. NY state really is a divided state, Upstate NY suffers from big apples laws..... it has always been the talk upstate. \

This is all just a few mile from my town I lived in.

and Saranac Brewery, nice.
Actually, that's a picture of Lake Placid, sometimes referred to as Lake Plastic because it caters to the tourists. Sort of like the Canadian side of the falls, but on a much smaller scale. The speed oval on the bottom right is the outdoor speed skating oval. The large building next to it houses the four ice skating rinks. One of which is the arena where the US hockey team beat the Russians in the 1980 winter Olympics, and those from LP never tire of letting people know that.

If you're intending to move here there are some things you should know:

Saranac and Saranac Lake are two different places. Saranac is about 40 minutes downstream from Saranac Lake on the Saranac River. Please don’t get us confused. Also the Village of Saranac Lake isn’t really on Saranac Lake, it’s on Lake Flower. For that matter, the Village of Lake Placid is on Mirror Lake (closest to the buildings in the photo), and the Village of Tupper Lake is actually on Raquette Lake (longish stories). Lake Placid is the lake further up and that's Whiteface Mt. in the back, otherwise known as Iceface. You really have to know how to ski to run the Olympic trails. The three lakes make up the 'Tri-Lakes' not that there's any shortage of lakes in the rest on the park.

The Adirondacks are a great place if you like winter sports & activities, and summer activities too for that matter. So bring your skis, (both kinds), snowshoes, rock & ice climbing gear, hiking boots, bicycles (both kinds too), kayaks & canoes, and bobsled if you got one. Also your Jumpers & Hunters if you ride. And a maybe a snowmobile too. If you come up here, you can load for bear, and mean it.

It's not such a great place to earn a living through. I don't know what your degree will be in but keep this in mind; Not for nothing is it called the Adirondacks. It means ‘Those who eat bark’. It is a derogatory Mohawk term for the Algonquians that lived here because the growing season is so short there’s nothing else to eat. So be prepared to become a ‘North Country Specialist'; I.e You will need to learn how to do whatever work may be available to be done.

It is stunningly beautiful! I try to remember that on the -30 to -40 weeks we get on occasion. It's regularly the coldest spot the the nation some winters.

And that's my NY.

Oh, and I'm afraid the the beer actually is made in Utica, but it IS good.

For what it’s worth, I always found the falls astonishing the several times I visited.

Not saying every fan is like that, but every time Buffalo visits down here there are problems with fans that doesn't occur with any other team.

Levelcross, I know exactly what you mean.
As they say...it takes two to tango...I'm sure they were probably being egged on because they were in YOUR town...and our fans ARE a little vocal. I've been to plenty of Bills and Sabres game and never seen a fight.

I knew the picture was LP, that's what I googled But I saw under your avatar that it said Saranac Lake..I assumed you'd been there haha. I haven't been up that way in a LONG time.

My career is in Criminal Justice. Don't know if there's much up there other than park rangers. fish and game officers and local, county, and state police

LUBrowningBoy I will admit that upstate NY has some beautiful areas and good country to hunt and fish, you just have to make it around NYC, as this is the anus of the US along with Chicago IMHO. Just like California if you got rid of Hollywood, the politicians, the gangs, and earth quakes, cleaned up from San Francisco south to the border it would probably be a nice place.
