I've heard "downstate" occasionally: for example, here in

New York City, Cornell University has a school called

Downstate Medical. But it's not a term New York City or

Long Island residents would use to refer to ourselves:

we're "New Yorkers" (specifying that we're from "New York

City" or "the City" [and yes, I'm aware of the arrogance

of that one] if appropriate) or "Long Islanders.
