The Brooklynization of Upstate

The NY Times penned an article today that is near and dear to our hearts, outlining all the reasons that Upstate New York has drawn Brooklynites north of the city limits. Yes, there is the lure of affordable real estate, but also the culture, the nature and the increasing sense of community among ex-New Yorkers in towns from Beacon to Rosendale. We commend the article (and the accompanying slideshow of country havens for Brooklynites), although one criticism: shouldn’t they have mentioned Upstater in the piece?
