I'm from central New York. It's soda, not pop (that was the 50's). It's sub not hero or hogie. Bagels are pronounced bay-gal not BAG-al. It's pizza, not pie. It's Mario not Mare-io. It's the beach, not the shore. It's perfectly normal to get 8 inches of snow in one night then to have 80 degree weather the next day, Upstate NY is not just everything above NYC, and we use the word WICKED religiously.
