I can get on board with that.

I agree with this, but I think NYC is seperate and a nexus of the three other reasons.

I can see this point though would also argue that NYC is absolutely not New England whereas I am not sure you could say NYC is not Mid Atlantic


I guess you could argue far flung exurbs of the CSA are new englandish but 85+% is not while I would say close to 50% absolutely is Mid Atlantic


I still put NYC as part of the Mid Atlantic personally, albeit nearing the edge

How is NYC a link to the Rustbelt? Maybe in the 1980s, but no way today.

But they're in the South according to some, at least Baltimore and DC are....rendering the Mid-Atlantic states designation non-existent.

Baltimore and DC are Mid-Atlantic southern cities, Philly and NYC are Mid Atlantic quintessential northeastern cities.

I think greater NYC is an independent region bordered by the Northeast corner of the Mid-Atlantic (Philadelphia), and the southwest corner of New England (New Haven.) The Rust Belt/Interior Northeast borders NYC to the west, northwest, and north.

DC isn't a southern city. It's the southern most anchor of the northeast corridor.

That doesn't make a northeastern city. Plus, the south is killing the game right now much more so than most northern cities.

DC, Dallas, ATL, Miami, Houston, Charlotte, Raleigh are all hot right now.

Baltimore, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Orlando are all warming up.

Baltimore & DC arent really southern. DC is basically an extension of Virginia, which is already a semi southern/semi northeastern state, this ain 1880 VA is slowly drifting away from its upper south past and goin into its mid atlantic/lower northeast future. As for Baltimore, aside from demographics its exactly like Philly, with some "country" VA traits as well. Philly & NYC are the heart of the Northeast.
