I have never heard of anyone who hates the Northeast. But I have heard of people who hate the cold winter weather of the Northeast if they live in warmer parts of the country.

Of all the regions I actually think the Northeast gets the least amount of hate. I do think there is a lot of jealousy from the other regions since it is the richest, most cosmopolitan, most educated, and arguably the healthiest part of the country, but I don't think there's a ton of actual hate. New Jersey is the butt of a lot of jokes, but a lot of it is good-natured ribbing, and comes from fellow Northeasterners anyway.

Yeah I came to that realization. As a New Englander, I used to sort of fantasize about the beauty of Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire, but then came to the realization that for practical intents and purposes, CT is a better place to live. Much more jobs, a good blend of urban and rural, and the warmest climate in New England. The scenery in CT is honestly just as nice as most of southern Maine, even. But Maine is colder and has less jobs.

I get the high taxes, crowdedness and at times hectic way of life but it seems to be a common thing to hate on cities or regions that are more developed or established than others in said countries/states, etc.

Yet, people are still moving to these areas in great numbers and at times even acknowledging they'd like to either live/work there because of job opportunities, better schools and quality of living.
I am not sure if I would call it contempt but here on Long Island there is a lot of people upset about the high taxes, the way those taxes are wasted, traffic and the high cost of small old houses. You feel like you are being taken for a fool and being robbed blind.

Most people here like the area but every year more of them decide economically it is simply not worth it. I suspect that in other parts of the Northeast like New Jersey and Connecticut, people have similar views.

Every area gets smack-talked, the NE is not unique in this aspect whatsoever. I lived in the Midwest and that region got a lot of crap. I moved to Phoenix and this area gets smack-talked like crazy, too. My issue with the NE is the general rudeness I encounter from many people there. Then again, every area of every corner of the world has rude people (some more than others). I think the accent in the NE is annoying, but I dont discount the region because of it.

I disagree with this thread, more people hate the South than any other region in the country. Most of the country loves the Northeast because of Boston and NYC and they think its a highly educated and cosmopolitan area, only complaint I hear people say about the Northeast is the cost of living is bad and the weather is horrible thats it.

Can't say I've noticed too much hating on the Northeast. There's some ire directed towards Massachusetts Liberals and Godless New Yorkers but that's about it.

I actually love the climate of the northeast the best in the entire country. I find it to be dynamic, ever changing and interesting. Every month is different.

It's mostly people I've met in my immediate life who talk about how bad the northeast is bad, the traffic, the people, etc.
