TU for the new service, but it's hardly "upstate" when you make it barely 10 miles over the NY-PA border. Hudson Valley is more accurate.

Thanks for posting.

The "kitchen" looks like a just a fridge with sodas, and a basket of snack chips and apples.

For New Yorkers for New York City anything above New York City is Upstate.

Yeah same. More expensive than taking Metro North.

Correct. Only Manhattan is considered the city, lol.

Nobody commutes from Buffalo or Niagara Falls *daily* to the city. Rochester MAYBE, but I doubt it. I feel sorry for anyone who does. Rochester would be a 3 hour down, 4+ hour back on a bus, Buffalo or the Falls??? Fuggetaboutit... laugh out loud

At $25, This is really for those who want to drive to Kingston, park in a daily lot for free/cheap, then have someone else do the dirty work of driving to the city. you could EASILY spend twice that in parking (and hope you get a spot) and fender work in a day. Peace

It is funny to me how all these "western" NYers are calling their neck of the woods upstate. Born and raised in the "capital district," upstate to me was always things North, like deep into the 'dacks. Out west, finger lakes, Seneca, Rochester, Syracuse.....wasn't upstate as it wasn't "up."

Given that 1/2 the population lives in NYC or East (o.k. maybe even up to Yonkers) I think its fair to say the Hudson Valley is upstate and I wouldn't kill them over the use of the term. Besides, if downstaters got easy access to a garbage plate imagine how much state wide health insurance rates would go upWink.

25+ years ago used to take the Peter Pan and Yankee Trails to Albany (Coulson's magazine shop was a gold mind for the ride home!) back up from college and then stay around catch rides up to LP...ah memories.

Thumbs and rep for an "upstate" NY deal!
