Hmmm. Rowhomes. Borders New Jersey. Little Italy. Philadelphia metro.. I'd say it's midwestern.

You're joking, right?

I notice there has been one vote to the effect that Wilmington is not a Northeastern city. The only possible alternative would be to say that it is Mid-Atlantic, but while I would say that DE as a whole is best classified as Mid-Atlantic, Wilmington itself seems to fit the general demographic of a Northeastern city (a small one).

Mid-Atlantic is basically Northeast culturally. Maybe not a "New England" kind of Northeast, but Philly is very much Mid-Atlantic (and similar culturally to Wilmington.....and Baltimore and DC for that matter) and I hardly think they fit culturally into any other region.

No, it's a Southern city.

Let's get with the program, folks.

Your views seem to be in the minority. Care to share why you think it's southern? And do you consider Philly a southern city?

Actually, I was being sarcastic. IMO, Wilmington is a Northern city through and through; there's nothing remotely Southern about it.

Philly, a Southern city? Now that's a good one! LOL.

Actually, I think it's Mid-Atlantic just like Baltimore. In certain areas, it has a southern feel as well as some northern attributes just like Baltimore has (southern most northern city, northern most southern city).

Ahhhh..some parts of Philly feel like down south. Some parts of southern, jersey feel like down south.

We've been through this entire debate before, but I would propose that Delaware has noticeable Southern aspects from about Dover on down; yet the State overall can only really be classified as Mid-Atlantic. Weirdly, I think the City of Wilmington itself (not necessarily covering al its suburbs) fits into a Northeastern mold. However, might it not be also argued that "Northeastern" itself is too big a category, and that it is only meaningful to talk about smaller divisions such as New England, etc. Maybe by Northeastern, people are thinking of a specifically urban environment.
