I for one miss the old "Tri-State Area" forum. It encompassed all of the in which areas I worked and ate.
Now if I want to see what is going on in Bergen, Rockland, Westchester or Fairfield counties I have to go to 3 different boards, none of which really focuses on the region I want. In general, I do not need information on Rhode Island, Far North/West NY, or Southern New Jersey; though I have no way to avoid it.
After having all this time to reflect, I feel removing the Tri-State board was a mistake.
