You didn't answer my question. Who from Philly or NYC is on this thread jock riding? We're already in the Northeast. We're not on here desperately begging and pleading to be associated with other cities.

You mean like this: The 2nd NYC - San Fran vs Philly

Non-Italian Philly accent. Parking Wars is actually a good show to watch to get a good sense of the different flavors of the city.

Are you sure that's all that I see? Go take a look for yourself at the "jock-riding" from northeasterners going in that thread. It certainly doesn't take 18 pages to say that they're not the 6th borough.

That thread turned more into a SF vs Philly urbanity battle than any real comparison with NYC. That is always going to be the case when those two cities are compared, particularly when 18Montclair makes an entrance to a thread.

What Italian enclaves exist in the Baltimore metro other than a theme park-style Little Italy (similar to Cleveland or New Orleans)? What towns are more than 25% Italian similar to what you find in North and South Jersey?

Italian-American Towns in New Jersey
There are no Italian enclaves in Baltimore or its suburbs and Maryland is only about 5% Italian American. If someone wants to argue that Baltimore is "northeastern", I wouldn't emphasize the "Italian presence." New Orleans is much more Italian than Baltimore.

Not sure if that's true, but it doesn't come close to Philly. Richmond is 3.6% Italian, Baltimore is 6.5% Italian, Philly is 14.0% Italian, and NYC is 14.4% Italian. In raw numbers, the Philly metro has the second largest Italian population (even larger than Chicago, which is a much larger metro).

The New Orleans metro is 9% Italian and Baltimore is 6.5% Italian. So it makes no sense to "shift" Baltimore out of the South and into the Northeast based on a history of Italian immigration.
