I am about 40 miles out of NYC, far enough that there is more dirt than pavement. There is even a farm about 5 miles from me that produces beef, pork, lamb, poultry, various vegetables. A couple apple orchards too! But, yes, it is suburbia, and not the best place to go tractor shopping. At least it is suburbia from 40 or 50 years ago so it isn't all sprawl and developments. It feels sort of like the country, but is still about an hour from the greatest city on earth and the jobs and wealth that come with it. Another 40 miles out of town and it starts to get kinda rural.
