When I think midwest I don't think Chicago because I don't think of big cities as typical of the midwest. I think cornfields and a buuuunch of small or midsize towns and cities. Indiana

Not when you have cities like El Paso and Brownsville existing.

Outside of the North East/East Coast the Midwest has the largest concentration of medium to large sized cities of any region, but I get that people think of it as farmland and flyover country.

New York's size would be part of the reason why it would be the embodiment of the Northeast. It's a little like Pennsylvania in parts. It's a little like Northern New England in parts. And it's a little like Southern New England in parts. Historically, it shares settlement patterns with Pennsylvania and New Jersey but also New England.

Right. It's odd that people think of it that way, but in truth it's the most urban area of the country outside the Northeast.

More Urban than the west coast (San Diego -> Los Angeles -> San Francisco/San Jose/Oakland -> Portland -> Seattle)?

The Great Lakes (Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland) portion of the midwest I'd put as maybe 3rd in the nation or 4th.

Since when is a 20-mile strip of land considered a major region in the US?

So what states are actually in the "South East Central Region?" I would need to know before I make my list. I've seen Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina, so in that case wouldn't Georgia be as well? Would that mean it can't be in the south region?
