Just a side note..if you want to stand out like a touristy NYC'er or Jerseyite up there, then refer to the place as the "Dacks" Otherwise, if you want to blend in, refer to it as the Adirondacks. Weekend warriors get pointed at and made fun of when they say Dacks.

Thank you Rob! This has been a pet peeve of mine for years. I can handle the Near Trapps becoming "the Nears", and the Catskills becoming "the Cats", although that one still sounds stupid to me. But I grew up in the ADKs, and hate to hear them denigrated.

Waiting for Rumney to become "The Nee".

Do y'all all call them the Shawangunks too? And have no Cathys or Wills in your lives? Contractions are fun. Saying the whole long word takes more work. And if drawing it all out is what makes you feel like a local and "in" with the local scene then woohoo for you. Perhaps you should go spend your time in the District of Columbia...

Yeah, but is it "Daks" or "Dacks"? We've seen both.

First of all- you better tell that to ALOT of the locals because they are standing out like touristy NYC'ers or Jerseyites in their own yards and businesses these days.

Second, why try to blend in? The locals know you weren't born there anyway. So, who are you fooling except other NYC'ers and Jerseyites?

Third, NYC'ers living in Kerhonkson standout like a sore thumb- almost as much as a displaced Virginians, Seattlers(?), and New Hopians do!

Especially the former death metal ner'do'wells turned into upstanding, respectable, married law enforcement officers!
