Really? I'd most definitely consider Illinois to be the mid-west

Basically, anything north of the Parallel 36 30 North Line (VA/NC and KY/TN borders) and east of the Mississippi River are part of the Northeast.
I've never heard of the Great Lakes states being considered part of the Northeast.

I think some parts of CT are reminiscent of the south along the coast

But the southeast includes all states east of the Mississippi River and south of either Ohio and Potomac Rivers or Parallel 36 30 North (Depending on how you define the Northeast and the Southeast). So why not have the northeast include all the states east of the Mississippi River? The Northeast you're talking about used to not have Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin and sometimes Kentucky (Depending on how you define the Northeast and the Southeast) and that definition is from the 18th century, when the US used to be smaller. When I define the Northeast, I use the 21st century definition, which includes the states from Maine to Virginia and from Virginia to Wisconsin.
