A great New York separation?

I guess that talking about the Upstate-Downstate relationship inevitably leads to talk of possible separation, of ways to fragment the state. NYCO points to another discussion on separation, with both Upstate and Downstate voices.

I don't think we're headed for separation - yet - but the prospect is good food for thought, making us consider what really connects (or doesn't connect) the Empire State. And even though it's Western NY-centric, I like one of the proposed names for a new Upstate - the State of Niagara. I just don't expect to see it happen.
