    If you are from new york then you should know how to answer it. I don't play that game. I let people know "everywhere" & i am 'crazy" when they ask me....

    By the way i am from Brooklyn....

    Depends on what the context is, but in general the answer would be either NY (if you actually lived there for some time and consider yourself having true history there) or your current state. Then sit back and watch them try to figure out how to ask you properly to get the answer of where your family came from.

    I moved around a lot as a kid and adult. When asked I just say the place I lived the longest or most fond of. If you graduated high school and college in the same area, then that by default if where you are from.

    I live in Minnesota but grew up in New York. Your ethnic background is not what people are asking about when they ask where you're from.

    I'm Dominican and I grew up in NYC. I came to the states a couple of months before I turned 4 in 1981 and I'm 42 now. I tell people I'm from NY even though I was born in DR. Unless they're more specific and ask "Where are you originally from?"
