    I’ve never heard of New England as the 13 colony states. NY, NJ, etc is the “Mid-Atlantic.”

    @Eva Peron:  Are they teaching that NY is part of New England in schools?

    @Woodstock:  Yeah, I think there’s confusion between New England (NE) and Northeast (NE).

    @futuremrsbrunell:  lol 🙂

    I once met someone who asked if CT was near Ohio. Sooo maybe that’s where some of the confusion stems from?? Haha

    @MissBoPeep:  A lot of my students think Connecticut and Pennsylvania look the same on the map.  Social studies isn’t exactly well taught in a lot of schools.

    Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.  That’s New England.

    New York is absolutely NOT part of New England…and definitely not Ohio!

    I’ve been a resident of both regions and have always thought that:

    New England is MA, New Husband, VT, ME, CT, and RI.

    The Mid-Atlantic region is PA, NY, DE, NJ, and (usually, but not always) MD.

    @peachacid:  Oh man.  I’ll admit my memory is a little rusty now but in school we had to have the map down pat!

    New England absolutely just Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Anyone who says differently is wrong.

    I’m a native New Englander.

    @hotchildinthecity:  I think it’s kind of funny how adamant New Englanders are about New York not being part of New England and how adamant New Yorkers are that New York is not part of New England!

    I’ve always considered New England to be everything from your first poll option + NY.

    Definitely not the original 13 colonies though!

    You mean New England isn’t a state?

    I kid 🙂 (Well maybe only half kid, as I am from the SW and all those little bitty states confuse me)
