The rest of the state hates the Chicago area. Many suburbanites hate the city. So I guess that makes Chicago the most hated part of the state.

Central Valley for California.

I know Northwest Indiana is hated by many Hoosiers elsewhere in the state, mostly because of Gary and the heavy industry, and also because it's more associated with Chicago - it's in a different time zone than most of the rest of the state and it is in the Chicago media market. And it's a blue area in a red state. In reality there are some really nice cities and towns, and the Dunes National Lakeshore, but they oft get overlooked. They think it's all one big contiguous ghetto wasteland.

Likewise, people in the West Valley dislike those in the East Valley

Maryland - Montgomery County and PG County, and sometimes Baltimore City

Virginia - Northern Virginia

West Virginia - the Eastern Panhandle

All of these are liberal areas full of transplants that either dominate or have a disproportionate amount of political power in the state.

In Maryland, Montgomery COunty is the origin of most of our tax increases, nanny state laws, and liberal activist laws

In New York, it's gotta be where I grew up, Long Island. When I was a kid, the Long Island ("Lawn Guyland") accent used to irritate the hell out of me -- and yet when I watch old home movies, I have the same accent, so that was kind of hypocritical, huh? I ultimately managed to lose it for the most part when I went to college in the Midwest, but I can still turn it on when needed, like when I run into a bunch of guys with chinstrap beards and sleeveless T-shirts and feel the subconscious urge to fit in.

Well, the majority of the population of Maryland do live in the DC/Baltimore area, and those people seem to dislike the Eastern Shore, far southern MD, and far western MD. In my opinion I'm fine with SoMD and Western MD but the Eastern Shore really doesn't feel like Maryland at all.

The Eastern Shore feels more like Virginia to me.
