Which ones do you think are in it?

Here's a map too. You agree with it?

I don't agree with it. St. Louis is definitely in the Rust Belt region, as well as Cincinnati.

So is Rockford, sort of the Quad cities in Iowa, and maybe Rochester, MI and several of the upstate New York cities.

I would also go and say that it stretches a little more into Wisconsin, as opposed to barley skimming the shore...as well as Illinois, and UP Michigan.

Expand west to a line extending north from Saint Louis to Devenport, over to Beloit, Kenosha, Racine, Milw., cut northwest to Duluth. Minneapolis is not in the Rust Belt. New York City is not the Rust Belt.

I'd move its eastern end a bit farther north. Northern New Jersey and New York City are not Rust Belt. Binghamton, Syracuse and Rochester are, and need to be shaded red there. Make sure Scranton appears as the deepest crimson!!

I would say most cities either on the Great Lakes or within a relatively close proximity to the Great Lakes.

I wouldn't include Cincy, Columbus or St. Louis. I've been to C-bus and there is no way that place is rustbelt. To me rust belt is Gary, Toledo, Detroit, Flint, a little bit of Illinois, Cleveland, Akron, Youngstown/Warren, Steubenville, Weirton, WV, Erie, Pittsburgh, Scranton, Buffalo, Rochester, Binghamton. I guess i'm trying to say mostly the Great Lakes cities near Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

Actually, New York isn't really much of a manufacturing center. On those terms, you can't really call it "rust belt."
