throughout my 4 years active duty, I met at least a hundred folks from "N.Y."

One was from Ithaca, one was from Rochester and all the others were from "da city."

So it's understandable that most folks equate " Noo Yawk" wit "da city."

I think you are a smart fellow!

I noticed that thing a few years ago that upstaters don't have the City accent.
I worked in NC for Corning Inc. None of my colleagues in Corning, NY had an accent.

In most cases that's true. However I know/knew quite a few (educated) folks from "Nyawk" that had no accent at all.

(course there was one major I knew from Queens that had a master's degree and sounded like he'd just stepped off of the boat from the Scottish Highlands!)
