Im offended when people not from my area,who have likely never been, try to tell me where i live. Sorry, no ins, no ifs, or buts, I live in the Mid-Atlantic, a subregion of the Northeast, with the southern parts of the Mid-Atlantic having southern influences.

And Boston is definitely not new york, philly or connecticut...so is boston not northeastern? Truly, Philly is not New York or Connecticut. Every region of the Northeast has its unique characteristics.

Its funny, I have never heard anyone on Long Island or New York City ever call New York State the Mid-Atlantic. We would just say plain old Northeast. I suppose if we do not use Mid-Atlantic down here, I doubt they would say it upstate near the Canadian border!

To me the Mid-Atlantic is the coast down around the Delmarva area or Chesapeake Bay. Its warmer, less hectic and further away from the big cities - not New York City beaches like Coney Island and the Rockaways!

I would say you got it the other way around - Long Island seems more Mid-Atlantic to me than NYC.

Btw - the Mid-Atlantic would be some great region if it was sort of a mixture of North and South. Think NYC, Philly, Wash DC, Colonial Williamsburgh, Ocean City, the Jersey shore, the Shenadoah & Hudson Valleys, the Adirondacks, Catskills, Poconos and Niagara Falls all in one region! Plus Hershey!

The Mid-Atlantic is a subregion of the Northeast. I draw the line however, at any state south of Maryland. Those who say Virginia is Northeastern I think need to stop and think about what they are saying. Just about all of Virginia and North Carolina are climatalogically and culturally Southern states. Northern Virginia is as far as I would go for an inclusion in the Mid-Atlantic.

Nope, I agree with John Starks. When I think of Mid-Atlantic cites I think of Philadelphia, Newark, Dover, Baltimore and NYC. Of course there are others but these are just some examples. Long Island is too far off for me and is to suburbian. I would rather group Long Island with upstate NY then I would the Mid-Atlantic.
