If so, which regions are you trading?

I just hate those square looking states in the West (Wyoming, Colorado, Dakota's etc.) to be honest, think they should take a more natural shape.

Didn't know all Americans were this satisfied with their state regions.

New York would probably say that New Jersey can have Staten Island, but New Jersey says absolutely not.

I wish we would get more credit and more people would know that half the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island are New Jersey's and half New York's - both are actually completely on our side of the river, but of course we have to share them and New York gets all the glory for them anyway.

That's really all I would say for my area.

Some of them may be square-shaped, but they've got the best natural scenery in the country.

And the answer is no, I wouldn't trade for anything else.

I'd trade the Central Valley for the Willamette Valley in Oregon because it's more scenic, greener, and gets more rainfall.

If the Adirondacks bordered Lake Erie instead of Lake George I'd be back up in Erie in a heartbeat.

Yes, I would...
I'd love to get rid of the 3 most extreme upper northwestern Iowa counties & dump them into whichever neighboring state up there (either S.D. or Mn.) would have them.
Coming in to replace them, I'd like to have the 3 extreme southwestern counties from Wisconsin.

p.s. Iowa is my birthplace state by the way but I haven't lived there for 35 years. I still love it though & would consider the 3 county tradeoff to be an improvement for that state.

Please throw Sioux City into that package too.

If Connecticut ever invaded and annexed the bulk of Rhode Island, then New York should demand Block Island and Aquidneck Island (Newport) as compensation. Massachusetts could have Tiverton and Little Compton as compensation.
