Boston is less of a row house city than Baltimore, the row houses are mostly limited to around the center. They're both coastal port and industrial cities, though historically and demographically they had very different cultures. Baltimore felt rather different to me than Boston, even from just a quick visit. Both are obviously rather old cities for North American standards.

Also I believe that Atlanta more like Baltimore (Lack of Hockey team for instance), accents Grits/ Fried Chicken popular and subway extensiveness
Baltimore is only 38.3 miles away from Washington, which has a hockey team, so Baltimore hockey fans would have to support a Washington hockey team. I considered Baltimore and Washington one metropolitan area. Baltimore accent is similar to Philadelphia accent. There are fried chicken everywhere around the US and the World.

But none the less Hockey is Far more popular (and all winter sports) in Boston than Baltimore for example there is no equivalence to the Beanpot in Baltimore (a BU/BC/NU Harvard tournament)

Eating fried chicken is certainly not only a Southern quality. Soul food is more of an ethnic cuisine rather than a regional cuisine. The South just so happens to have the largest African American population, so you're naturally going to see more soul food establishments there than in other regions.

dunno, in Philly I have always thought about the area as being Mid Atlantic (in fact many business use this name) Also the Northeast which is New England and the mid atlantic

NJ to me is the quintessential Mid Atlantic state

Fried chicken is a southern cuisine. It was introduced to the American South by Scottish settlers.

So it's not ethnic cuisine? Does eating fried chicken make a person Southern?

You won't get Baltimore to support a DC team, trust me. They are two separate metros and function as such.
