Read the previous posts in the thread and it is not ludicrous. Northeastern does not equal the Bos-Wash corridor and this has been done many times over.

Nobody in the thread gave any evidence either. I was born and raised in Western NY (Rochester) and nobody relates to New York City there. It is considered a place to visit from time to time

If you are talking only geographically then yes, but culturally not at all alike

Many of the posts earlier were just people that were angry that they were compared to the Midwest which the media stereotypes negatively. A small group on here apparently wants to be something they are not

Again, we already went over the Coastal/Bos-Wash portion of the Northeast and the Interior Northeast.

It doesn't have anything to do with a negative image or anything else. All of these areas are Northeastern. It is no different from the differences within the Midwest between Great Lakes areas and parts of the region in the Plains or further south.

There also was mention of being a part of the Great Lakes region, but that doesn't equal Midwestern either.

As mentioned before, all of this has been mentioned earlier in the thread. I live only an hour east and Rochester is Northeastern.

Well, I saw alot of angry posts by those who said that they were part of the Northeast without any real points being made

As far as your point you are talking geography and I am talking culturally

So in a sense we are both right

Culturally they are Great Lakes/Midwest and geographically they are Northeast

How is it Midwestern then? Does this make Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago and Milwaukee Northeastern?

Again, people made their points and made the difference between different parts of the Northeast. That still doesn't make the Interior Northeast "Midwestern". If we say "Great Lakes", then that is different, as it goes across different regions and has cultural differences within it.

This map is one of many that have it down best. Probably the most accurate as it has Texas as its own region and the Great Lakes as its own region

No they did not make their points. People were just arguing and butthurt at the comparison. The cultural similarites are much greater with the Midwest/Great Lakes than the Northeastern seaboard. The climate regions are different, the accents are different, the topography is different

I just get the feeling that you like arguing

Basically, you have no evidence to support your claims other that a few posters who you agreed with
