Well what gives it a Northeastern look and feel rather a Midwestern look and feel?

If you read the entry and look at some of the communities, the architecture and the built environment/design of some of the towns. I mentioned that earlier in the thread.

With that said, I'm not like others that will make NE Ohio "Northeastern", the way they would try to make Buffalo or Pittsburgh "Midwestern".(Shrug)

Again, nobody's argued that Buffalo is not in a Northeastern state. The argument is that they are more culturally similar to Midwestern cities.

Perhaps you should explain your own words.

Upstate NY is kind of like that. We have a strong NYC influence in the eastern half, while western NY(i.e.-Buffalo and Rochester areas), have more of a Midwestern vibe. For instance, you'll hear people say, " pop" instead of soda like we say here in Syracuse.

No sweat, as I was referring to the term "Pop". That still doesn't make Buffalo or Rochester "Midwestern" areas outside of that term. Anything else?

I'd even revise that post by saying that "Soda" is more likely in Rochester.

Uh, that's not how I read that. LOL. You said they had a Midwestern vibe and gave "pop" as an example. I didn't read that as saying that the Midwestern vibe there was limited to their use of the word "pop."

We'll, now you know, as that came to mind at the time.

That is some serious digging, btw. lol

I'm sure it did. But there was still no indication that "Midwestern vibe" only meant use of the word "pop."

But it's not a big deal since people recast statements they made under oath all the time. I'd obviously expect less on City-Data.

Not really. I found it when making my "Midwestern vibe" thread.

Or it could be an aspect, but the general body of work or view is different. It is like people when looking at their background and how they are viewed socially, as an example.

Got ya' in regards to the search......

Climate, speech patterns, settlement history, economy (as in not among the poorest states). In these regards Iowa is much closer to MA than MS.

I guess. I would say they are equally different. It's like saying a whale is more similar to a human being than a frog because it's a mammal.
