When I hear someone say they're from NY I usually ask "Where" ?. If they say the town of Rochester, Syracuse or Binghamton etc I usually say 'That's not NY. Anything above E 233 st is upstate NY". Just my perspective. Though I had many aunts and uncles and cousins growing up they all tended to stay in the Parkchester or Castle Hill area even after they got married. As a new driver and a making deliveries and driving a cab all over the BX I did see most of the neighborhoods. I lived in 3 of them. There are only 2 areas I really didn't examine closely. One was Riverdale. I know there are apartment houses and mansions in one area but there is also an area east of Webster ave where smaller framed homes are located. Then there's somewhere off Boston Post RD, going north around 238 st (???) I am not familiar with at all. Still love hearing about all the areas of the BX.
