Right. I never knew geography could be subjective until I read posts on city-data.

The entirety of New York and Pennsylvania reside in the Northeast region of the US; it's quite ludicrous to suggest otherwise.

Pittsburgh is absolutely far north enough of to be classified as Northeastern. It's not Mid-Atlantic at all.

I don't know about that "not mid-atlantic". By the government NY, PA and NJ are the mid-Atlantic.

The Mid-Atlantic also includes MD and DE and NOVA at least in my definition. The rest of Virginia is Southern. As far as a Mid-Atlantic city is concerned, I only consider the cities of the Bos-Wash corridor Mid-Atlantic since after all most are on or close to the Atlantic Ocean. I have a tough time calling Pittsburgh, Buffalo, and Erie Mid-Atlantic when they are so far inland.

I know this is going to make some people angry, but Western NY, Western PA are both mix of Great Lakes region and Midwestern

The vibe in those places is nothing like the Northeast..... and this is a huge compliment

Except the fact that culturally Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Rochester are far more similar to Cleveland, Milwaukee, Detroit and Chicago

Its ludicrous to suggest otherwise
