Basically where do you think these cities ought to be grouped? My personal vote would be that they are a mix...not decidedly either one. Although, my tendency would be to group them in with Midwestern cities before cities in the BosWash corridor.

They are in the northeast. Both culturally and geographically. I live in PA and would never in a million years consider these places anywhere but the NE. Decidedly so too.

Buffalo is completely northeastern, Pittsburgh is mostly northeastern but with aome Midwest influence, and Erie is midwestern. In my opinion.

So does Buffalo, but all three cities are North Eastern.

Erie and Buffalo are Great Lakes States, and Pittsburgh has just a tinge of Appalachia.

Pittsburghers May think of themselves as being in the northeast, but no one in the Boston-Washington corridor gives Pittsburgh any thought as to being a northeastern city.

Having lived in all three, Pittsburgh has much more in common with Chicago than it does Philly.

Then they're morons. There is more to the Northeast than I-95. What don't some people get that.

I lived in Pittsburgh and Philly and other places in PA. Philly is as close to Pittsburgh
as Memphis is to New York. Relative to PA, Pittsburgh is midwestern. A world apart
from anywhere else in PA. I live in KY now, and Pittsburgh is closer to Louisville and
other midwestern cities than any other PA metro area.

Actually Pittsburgh is northwestern Pa city, but Ohio is the gateway to the Midwest. Which means that Pa (especially Pittsburgh) should be considered to be the gateway to the east coast.

Erie and Buffalo which are north and northeast to Pittsburgh have to be (according to logic) Northeaster cities.

Now the lifestyles of these cities (I have lived in 2 out of 3 of them) can be considered to be a little more laid back then many die hard east coast cities.

Then Erie must be "Midwestern" too. Philly and Pittsbrugh aren't a world apart.
