Same with northern Upstate NY near Quebec. You do have some people that go back and forth and even Plattsburgh markets itself as Montreal's U.S. suburb.

“If somebody asked me, ‘What do you think of Michigan,’ I would be more inclined to throw it in the Northeast,” says Mike Bernacchi, professor of marketing at University of Detroit Mercy.

“I’m not a native Michigander. It is in the Northeast,” he says.

But given that, Bernacchi sees how Michigan can have picked up a Midwest tag, especially given the state’s blue-collar history.

“When you say ‘Northeast,’ the ambience of it is definitely not blue-collar … blue-collar seems to fit Midwestern thinking.

You're not helping your argument. The Connecticut Western Reserve was first settled by AMERICANS is near the turn of the 19th century, not Englishmen in the 1600s

What are you talking about? My point is that Cleveland and NE Ohio can be viewed as having a Northeastern look and feel. Even within that entry, it states that it is a part of Ohio where the built environment has a New England/Northeastern influence.

granted the two are at extreme ends of the north from one another so there's bound to be differences there alone. Which is why the concept of the Midwest seems to exist at all. That is also why New England is often considered separate from even NY, PA and NJ.

But on the whole they are more connected to each-other east and west than they are if one looked north to south.

I've seen many people say that, and don't really get it; little of it seems New England-like from descriptions and images I've seen. What exactly make Northeastern Ohio feel not Midwestern?

I guess because Cleveland has wood-framed houses. But so does Milwaukee.

I didn't say that it doesn't feel Midwestern. I said that some may view NE Ohio as having a Northeastern look and feel. Here are some places mentioned in the Wiki entry:
