the scope of this series of messages is strictly confined to two
related things: true admin borders which are tied to local government
in a strict sense (that is, there is an actual elected governmental
body) and CDPs which are lumped in as admin_level 8 even
though they do not have elected governments (in NYS, these
correspond roughly to Hamlets, which are long established
named places without governments.)

another upstate NY mapper and i have been cleaning up borders
in NY. it's been a long going and often tedious effort, and in
the process i've seen a lot of things. a bunch of discrete topics
follow in separate email messages so that we can focus on each
