Maryland isn't known for its Irish and Italian communities.

That doesn't change the fact that it was founded by Catholics for Catholics.

Oh...my...god...one characteristic that Maryland doesn't have....look at the rest of the Northeast outside of the Bos-Wash...I don't see a lot of Irish and Italian clans. Maryland is more Northeast today than it is anything else, and that's undeniable, save for mk7895 if he ever shows up again...

Well it seems decided then....that Pittsburgh, Erie, and Buffalo are Northeastern...and that through another thread on here, that Cleveland is Midwestern. All of these cities lie on the periphery of their regions though and likely have more in common with each other.

Wow what a shock, after putting it to a vote and most people arguing about it, people mostly chose these three cities are in the Northeast just as the Census Bureau and those who live in those cities say. Wow!

It was, but many states in modern times have much larger populations of Catholics.

Why is it "undeniably" Northeastern? You insist it's because of "demographics" how is it demographically Northeastern?

You have to factor in linguistics, economic ties, climate, lifestyle, etc. as well. Most of Maryland is solidly Northeastern imo, save for the far southern and East Coast portions.

See David J's reply. I have no further comments on the issue. And besides...there really isn't a standard Northeastern...New England is demographically different from Pennsylvania.
