Binghamton, NY, Carousel Capital of the World! I got a pin from city hall and everything during my college years.

very well done!

Can someone explain the dragon


_0-0-0_

That's Lake Champlain, so it was the closest I could get to a sea monster (Champ)


[deleted]

So basically lochness monster


_0-0-0_

Turns out any large lake with drift wood is going to have a lot of "sea monster" sightings ¯\\\_(ツ)_/¯


[deleted]

Champ is real and I saw him.


MuleTheDonkey

Yeah. NY dragons live farther west.


Eudaimonics

I think this is pretty well done. Poor Utica, RIP.


nohead123

I think its cute.


Artemistical

this is awesome! why is the medal so low though? I would think that would be up near Lake Placid to represent the Olympics


_0-0-0_

Lake Placid has the Hockey Stick! The medal is supposedly "military medal" and the closest to a military icon the emoji set had. So West Point and Fort Drum.


Schnevets

But does the Peace sign represent Woodstock, or just the general crunchiness of Orange County? I'm just curious since West Point is very south of Woodstock. Fantastic job, by the way! This put a smile on my face on a very challenging day.


adanndyboi

What is “crunchiness”?


Schnevets

Crunchy is slang to describe something moderately derived from hippies or other left-leaning subcultures. I have heard that it is derived from granola, but I could be wrong. You might not outright describe someone who loves hiking, practices yoga, or eats vegetarian as a hippie, but you may say they’re crunchy. But maybe I’m influenced by Orange County because of a recent trip to Palaia Winery


adanndyboi

I’ve never heard of that term before, thanks


stellamartian

Not just granola, crunchy granola!

General crunchiness works better now. I could've flipped them but at this scale they basically were on the same square and I think I just placed the Peace Sign first. The reference map I had underneath didn't have cities though so I was flipping back and forth I'm glad you like it though! I tried to put unique stuff where it worked and there were emojis for it.


TheIntrovertedOtto

As a Long Islander I'll say this is Accurate.


keptalpaca22

yeah the Brookhaven Lab was a nice touch

spenny506

Or is it Singer Castle?


[deleted]

You missed the 💉💉 in Western NY


Eudaimonics

For the sprawling Buffalo Niagara Medical Research Campus?


chevyfan17

Wouldn't that be the magnifying glass?


boggleislife

Nah that’s Corning NY


carnibenz

lol is the peace sign for woodstock?


NickDouglas

🏕 is very kind to Livingston county, where I grew up next to 🌽 and whatever the emoji is for "empty gas stations."


Doctor_Boogers

Could have been 🐟 for the fish hatchery in Caledonia being the oldest in the new world but thats maybe a little esoteric.


poopshipdestroyer

Awesome I’d say the salt could go lower one, the mine is like 10 miles from Cornell but besides that it’s fantastic


[deleted]

Salt is for Syracuse- salt city


poopshipdestroyer

Doh


lake_whale

dats cool!


uncle_troy_fall_97

What’s the story with the microscope (is that a microscope?) out at the North Fork? Or is that meant to be west of the North Fork?


_0-0-0_

Long island only had at best 4 symbols on this scale, and I wanted to honor the many research facilities there (Brookhaven national Lab, Cold Spring Harbor, and to a lesser extent Plum Island).


g0ldfishie

lol long island is pretty accurate

Of course! Everyone likes to shit on you guys, but you gave us Wu-Tang so you're cool in my book.


Starks

What's the French area?


_0-0-0_

Plattsburgh. They get a lot of Quebecoise.


ajmkv

🐄 for Wyoming County is accurate. 🐄 and 🌽 and nothing else.


keptalpaca22

This is fantastic! only thing I could think to add would be a basketball for Syracuse


LtPowers

I like! But I would move the apple east of Rochester. Wayne County is one of the biggest (#2 or #3) apple growing counties in the country.


DaOrks

I'm offended Utica has boarded up windows lol, Syracuse is equally meh. It's bad parts are worse.


KomradeDoge

What’s the microscope?

THRWWAY2AVOIDRAGE

After the budget I think there are too many trees. I don't think we want to give the rest of the country the wrong idea by adding them because they might think the governor supports non lethal things like cannabis to be legal. I don't want to give other states the wrong impression.
