About Upstater

upstater-mission

Upstater is about living, buying, renting and vacationing in upstate New York — at least the part of upstate New York that’s within three hours of New York City! We cover both sides of the river, north of Westchester County, south of Albany, east of the Finger Lakes, and all the way to the eastern border of New York state. We bring you insight into the upstate real estate market, not to mention great houses, regional events and activities and a window in the upstate life. And did we mention the houses?

Upstater was founded by Lisa Selin Davis and Alia Hanna Habib in 2011 and acts as a guide for Hudson Valley life. Our writers have hearts, mortgages, leases and legacies in Upstate New York. We also have a whole lot of enthusiasm for the architectural variety and relative affordability of real estate, plus the fresh air, incredible food, gorgeous countryside and deep cultural life here. We are not real estate agents and, alas, we don’t visit every property in person. Rather, we cull through the thousands of real estate listings in upstate New York to bring you our recommendations. We hope you’ll let us know if you go see any, and share feedback with our readers.
