There are certain locations particularly identified with this appellation:
- Ancram, New York, in the valley of Punch Brook
- Fish House, New York, now covered by Great Sacandaga Lake
- Between Hamburg, New Jersey and Denton, New York, along the Wallkill River, drained to form the "Black Dirt Country"
