Welcome to Henrietta... my Hometown
The reason I say that Henrietta, New York is not part of NYC is because when I was traveling on the road with my family, most kids, and a lot of adults, thought this was so.
As soon as you said New York, you could See in their eyes the high rise buildings, traffic, glamour, and even the perceived danger of The Big Apple in their eyes.
OK, so this is a little literary license, since I was a child then, too.
Henrietta is just south of Rochester in Upstate New York, which is also not part of New York City. Really.

Oops, can you spot Rascal, our Chocolate Labrador?
He's also a resident of Henrietta, the sneaky boy. He somehow opened the screen door to escape. But he's highly aware he did a naughty. See how he is so low to the ground? He's admitting he's guilty as charged.
We Get Snow in Henrietta, New York. Sometimes... a lot.
Plenty of Snow for Area Winter Sports
Largest of the Great Lakes, Ontario Lake to the north gives the Greater Rochester, NY area the most Lake Effect snow, but Erie Lake to the just west of Buffalo, sometimes contributes quite a bit of Lake effect snow as well. But those 2 lakes and the area wide snow storms Rochester and the Henrietta average 100 inches per year. Surprisingly, although you may be aware that Buffalo gets a lot of snow, the average is only 93.4 inches.

Funny you mentioned people not familiar with NY State thinking Henrietta (or any part of western NY State) is just a suburb of NYC. I went to college (from Rochester) in Kansas (long story) and people 'out there' (who had never been to the East Coast) asked me such questions as "Do you go into New York City to do your grocery shopping?". Duh -- NYC is 400 miles from Rochester! LOL. Yes, mention New York and everyone assumes it's ALL New York City! Love your western NY stories!
