It's a little too Megalopolis-y for me. I like space between my urban areas. I don't like clutter. I don't even enjoy looking at maps of that area. The end.

I currently live in NYC and have been up and down the area for the past few years. It's comforting to know that you can just hop on a bus and 2-4 hours later, you are in another great city. It's just difficult to do that anywhere else in the US.

I think that is one of the things I miss about living within that corridor. From New York you can take a day trip to Philly, Boston, Connecticut, Atlantic city and they were all within a 4 hour ride.

I only moved to VA, because my mom lives in VA if it wasn't for that I will definitely would have stayed in NYC. Everything is so great in NYC. There are plenty stuff to do in NYC. I never get bored when I am in NYC. Transportation 24 hours, restaurants open until very late. I love NY because of all these things.

My guess is he talking about Maryland or maybe Northern Virginia. Is not Maryland one of the states with the highest average annual income lately?

It sort of feels like you've left civilization when you leave the area.

Like others said, I love how you can get to most places within the megalopolis within a day's drive...I live in SW CT and can get to all the major cities in the megalopolis within 5 hours and I-95 allows good access to all these areas.

Hop on a bus in Pittsburgh and you're in DC or Baltimore in 4 hours while it's 7.5 hours from DC to Boston. It's manageable in some areas outside the megalopolis, but clearly there's no place quite like Bos-Wash for urban connectivity.
