As far as NY goes.... Its very easy to get to and can be done in about 3 hours.....
If you use googlemaps, you'll find Duanesburg quite easily. Duanesburg is located just west of Schenectady-- about 30 mins from Albany.
Saying something is "too far" from NYC is a bit subjective. It's about 3 hours from NYC give or take depending on where you are starting and where you are going. It's certainly not too far for a weekend visit, but probably further than anyone would want to commute.
"Upstate New York" is also a subjective term. I think everyone would consider Duanesburg part of Upstate, but no one really knows where "Upstate" starts. Some people say it's as far south as Westchester, some people would say it's the Hudson Valley, etc.
Hope this helps!
