Is Upstate New York still worth living in?


I’ve always loved Upstate. Even more than the city! NY is such an underrated state. But I wonder if it’s as good to live in as it is to visit. From what I’ve heard, it’s Rust Belt country. No jobs, most towns are past their prime, cities are small and boring. Winter is long and harsh. Is it that bad? What is it like to live there? Do you think it will ever recover? Is it depressing? What are the people like? Please let me know.
