In my opinion the Northeast = All of New England, NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, DC and NOVA.
Well, I think we're going to keep having this debate if people keep including Virginia in the northeast.

Those itty-bitty states all smushed together in the upper right-hand corner of the country.

I've spent most of my years in western PA, NOVA and MD, and I never thought of myself as living in the "northeast." I can see why someone living in the west or the south would think so, but I think that has more to do with the perspective of someone looking at the region from a distance.

People from the mid-Atlantic region don't really see the DC area, and many parts west and northwest, as part of the "northeast." Once you get up into Philly and northern Delaware, different story.

Pgh. is a special case. It's a hard city to place, and blends elements of the east, midwest [to a small extent] and northeast.

I still think that the area you are describing has more Northeastern elements than Southern ones, however. Maryland and Delaware and NOVA have more in common with Pennsylvania these days than with the South. Driving up Interstate 81, I began to feel more and more like I was entering Pennsylvania once I crossed into West Virginia and then into Maryland. Something changed, I can't quite put my finger on it, but I just knew I wasn't in the Southeast anymore.
