I hope not, because staten island is the entry point to the ny harbor. Too bad
some people don't see the strategic significance of the island to nyc.

The Northeastern Coast of the US is anything from Lubec, ME to False Cape State Park, VA. This includes the Cape Cod, the Long Island, the New Jersey and the Delmarva peninsulas.

Nope.

About Virginia
"The Commonwealth of Virginia is located in the South Atlantic region of the United States". Right from the official website of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Run for office. Become Governor of Virginia. Then you can debate, lecture and change where Virginians think they are. Till then, nada.

I think Virginia fits better in the Northeast today since Virginia ranks are similar to other northeastern states and Virginia would be a perfect addition to the 12 state Northeastern region.

I am going to give you props. Virginia is indeed rising in the ranks similar to the northeast states which on average are always far and above any southern state in terms of education, health, and crime...as for the rest of the state here in the south, i dont think they want anything to do with getting better because they don't want to live in a nanny state...they rather have bad schools and high obesity rates...

Delaware, Maryland, DC and West Virginia are also in the South Atlantic region.

K, except they'd be wrong. New England is New England and the Northeast is the Northeast.

New England's states do not change, they are static.
