Buffalo has more in common with Cleveland,Detroit, and Chicago than any city on the BosWash corrider. Especially since the Buffalo accent is similar to other cities on the Great Lakes and soda is called "Pop" over there.

What are your thoughts?

I'd say more of a Midwestern city.

Interior northeast. Not all the northeast is the coast.

neither. Anybody who claims one or the other hasn't spent much time in Buffalo. It is interior northeast. Pop isn't a midwestern thing as it spans over several regions.

This. Just like Pittsburgh, Buffalo is in the interior northeast. The interior northeast is different from the coastal northeast (Philadelphia, New York and Boston).

Great lakes cities have their own feel and should be categorized as such.
but Buffalo, Like Cleveland are in the transitional area between Northeastern and Midwestern.

Exactly. Same is true for the rest of the Upstate metros as well; Rochester, Syracuse, Albany. They certainly have elements of midwestern culture in them (esp Buffalo and Rochester); but they are still a part of the northeast. "Great Lakes" is really a sub-region all it's own and spans areas that are considered to be "northeast" and "midwest". Cleveland and Milwaukee have more in common with Buffalo and Rochester than they do with Omaha, Indianapolis, or Des Moines.

As someone who lived in the BosWash my entire life and spent time in Buffalo, to me, it feels more Midwestern, though not as Midwestern as real Midwestern cities. It's just a blend between Northeastern and Midwestern culture. Why do we have to categorize it as either Midwestern or northeastern? It's a blend.
