Welcome to mu43.com, pictureandrew from yet another New Yorker. I live just outside of the city...which has its good and bad points. Glad you found your way in and I'll look forward to seeing you around the board and possibly in the P.A.D. blog world, too!
Andrew, that's kind of embarrassing for those of us who assumed you meant NYC... I suppose for me since I live so close to NYC, and the fact that I call it "New York" that I just jumped to conclusions.
New York is a big state and has such an array of countryside, towns and cities. I know some people from the Bronx used to call Westchester County "upstate", which it surely is not.
Glad to have you aboard wherever you're from, pictureandrew.
