New York’s “Tech Valley”: It’s a Thing

New York City is starting to get a reputation for lightweight, consumer-facing, web-based tech. But some pretty serious “high tech” industries — semiconductors and nanotechnology — are starting to take hold in Eastern New York.

The region could be on its way to becoming the next Silicon Valley, according to the Wall Street Journal:

The Tech Valley is located in eastern New York and, though it’s not as well known as its sexier West Coast cousin, it is becoming a hot spot for tech companies.

Today more than 200 high-tech businesses have a presence in the Tech Valley, a corridor that stretches from the Canadian border to just north of New York City.

Good news! Is it okay to talk about your “sexier cousin” like that, though?
