How "interior"?

I live in Connecticut and have never seen a home this cheap, unless you're talking about a gutted, burnt out home in the ghetto of Bridgeport.

You can find homes in some of the smaller coastal cities in New England for that price. Not all of them are ghettos either. There are homes in Portland, ME for under $100k in nice neighborhoods (in a city that most people fawn over). New Bedford has trouble spots, but it's an overall attractive city on the coast. Some of the lesser known smaller coastal towns have them (I know Westport MA and Fairhaven MA does).

^^That's nice to know, but that was one of the ones I'd purposely excluded from this as I figured I'd get a lot of feedback about it and I'm already well aware of it. No matter, thanx anyway.

Wilmington has always had the old rowhome, ethnic neighborhoods, festivals, crime, commerce, history, jobs, but is otherwise completely forgotten.

I do like the look of Wilmington and how it looks so much bigger than it's population suggests, but Delaware wasn't part of this weird little question thing. Thanx very much though.

Apparently, Bruce, in England, you have to adhere to census guidelines, but every single entity and agency, including the census designates Wilmington as northeastern. (Phila-Camden-Wilmington Metro.)

Wilmington was a Pennsylvania settlement for over 150 years. Pardon the education.

Dude, I thanked you, but the fact is that wasn't what I asked for. I would also put Delaware in the Northeast (though I actually think the CB puts it in the South), but I was specifically wanting places in the states I mentioned. Most wouldn't think of Ohio as being in the Northeast, but I lumped it in as it does border PA and I wanted to have some suggestions for that state.

EDIT: The Census Bureau does put Delaware in the South, just as it puts Ohio in the Midwest. The whole point of asking a question is to get answers to that question. Thanx for taking the time to reply, but you didn't answer the question I asked.
