Syracuse is probably about 150 miles west of that spot; Binghamton roughly 150 miles southwest; Buffalo 300 miles west; and Scranton is most certainly at least 100 miles east of that mountainous region in central Pennsylvania.

But, hey, “A” for effort. At least Scranton is in Pennsylvania and the other three are within the borders of New York.

So there’s that.
