Have there been requests to break the popular TRISTATE board into NJ, UPSTATE (pick a demarkation) and WESTCHESTE/CONNECTICUT???
They are really 3 sparate entities and reading and contributing could be more focused.
Thoughts??

      No kidding...i can't think of another state, other than NJ that is divided by some imaginary(and VERY ambiguous) line of demarcation...I have yet to figure out where Tri-state begins and mid-atlantic ends....Maybe an explanation sticky at the top of tri-state can give concrete perimeters.

        Unfortunately I think almost no one reads those stickies.

        At the very top of this Site Talk board there's a sticky suggesting posters refrain from requesting new boards, yet the requests never cease. Hawaii, Las Vegas, New Jersey, San Diego, Orange County, Baltimore, Dallas, etc, etc, it never seems to end whenever I check in here.

        Yeah, that may be so, but discussing Buffalo, Long Island, Connecticut, and New Jersey in the same board never made any sense at any time. In the Tri-state area, the Tri-state area is generally defined much more narrowly than Chowhound does, as the area contiguous to metropolitan NY within about a 75 mile radius or so and does not include Long Island or Southern New Jersey. You don't need to redistribute old posts, just create new boards and archive the old one for reading only. There's no need to make this a more complex issue than it is.

          couldn't agree more. Not only it is tedious sometimes sifting through posts that are regarding completely different areas, there is also too much overlap - for example, CT is one of the tri state areas (which makes sense for some counties), but is also covered in the New England board (which is mostly RI, Maine, etc,).

          I suspect anchovy was referring to upstate NY, versus LI, Westchester, Fairfield Cty, CT, etc.. Nothing to do with north vs south Jersey. Not to worry anyway, nothing apparently will change any time soon.
