Not to be nitpicky but Pittsburgh is 365 miles and 6 hours from the Atlantic Ocean. It is NOT an East Coast city by any stretch of the imagination.
Maybe a better analogy would be the Eastern Portland.

It's a Mid-Atlantic state.

All you have to do is google it. We are always compared to Portland because of the hipster wannabes, hills, trees, and terrible weather. We get about as many sunny days as Portland. We are also not located in the midwest.

Yeah, I get it, but Pittsburgh is not an East Coast city dude. If not the East Coast or the Midwest then where is the Burg? Another topic for conversation perhaps?

Cheap and cloudy? Pittsburgh came to mind

EDIT: Read the OP, and I think the PNW would be better (Although not as cheap). Maybe Portland or a smaller city in Oregon/Washington

I also wonder about areas like the Northern MI, including the Upper Peninsula and the Northern parts of MN and WI.

Cheap + cloudy = rust belt cities like Cleveland, Detroit, Toledo, Buffalo, Rochester and things like that. The PNW is just expensive.

definatetly rochester/buffalo. i believe it has comparable rain and cloud coverage to seattle. most people would think that would make this a not so great place to live but i really like it. if i didn't live here i would want to move to the northwest anyways. oh and its definately cheap here as well. can get houses in good suburbs for 80-200k, and not dumps either.

probably the best bang for the buck and cloudy weather. as long as you can take snow you'll be alright lol.
