I don't think New York City quite does the same over there?
    No NYC definitely doesn't except maybe in the Northeast US, but even that's not true since Boston, DC, and Philly all are pretty proud independent cities.

    England is kind of lopsided urban wise I guess.

    Isn't Yorkshire England's answer to Michigan.

    Like I know Northwest England is apparently also a depressed area of old mines and old failed industrial places. But that actually has laudible cultural contributions and an air of "cool" to it. Like between the Beatles and Manchester's 80's bands it has things pretty covered in being cool.
    So I think it's more like England's answer to New York before the 90's renassiance.

    Pretty sure the Northeast is just AngloDetroit from what I know lol.

    You bring great shame to the international order of Northeasts. >:(
    Yorkshire and North East are different regions, Yorkshire is very nice while NE is comparable to Michigan. I agree with everything else you said though.
    Most people I know have moved out after they finished education because there's really no job prospects or opportunities. But at least the people are friendlier and less uptight in the North than the South, London is probably the least friendly place in the UK...

    lol yeah i recognize this.

    Some dude in Stockholm once asked my friend if we had elevators in the north

    I think this is pretty universal. Big city folk will always be going on about how great ther city life is

    To be fair, the international order itself is not doing too well. Apart from Argentina, China, Egypt and Denmark, (as far as I could think) most countries' North-Easts are either completely unremarkable or absolute hellholes.

    And the English North-East is more rural Pennsylvania. Bunch of mines and stuff that went kaput. The industries were in the North-West. Manchester, Liverpool, Lancashire etc.

    Not exactly related to the current talk, but I think it's kind of funny that regardless of how big or small a country is, there's bound to be the whole east-west thing going on. Like how there's stereotypes accorded to 'east side' and 'west side' people even through I live on an island 40 miles wide

    I'm pretty sure Chile disagrees.

    This was not the direction I thought this thread would take.

    I thought it might descend into Geek vs Nerds - or Defining what constitutes Geek culture - Instead it's about horse punching and how to justify dividing a location to because its the only accepted form of public hate.

    I stand by my claim to my sister that Arlong Park are better at derailing then the Television without Pity forums.
    Pell survived because he is a Falcon - Stop using him as a bad example.
    The Peregrine Falcon reaches faster speeds than any other animal on the planet when performing the stoop,which involves soaring to a great height and then diving steeply at speeds of over 320 km/h (200 mph)

    Even though I'm not from there, most of Brazil's Northeast was pretty nice when I was visiting.

    And the Northeast U.S. is one of my favorite places to visit period.

    ...Northeast Brazil...?
    You were on maybe a resort? Because I'm pretty sure that's the poorest area.

    Eh, I was visiting family in Resende, which is near Rio, but we visited up by Salvadore and Fortaleza. I mean, Salvadore is like where Delaware or Virginia is compared to New England, so it's not quite Northeast, I guess.

    It seriously wasn't bad. It was beautiful up there, even if sections of it aren't as affluent as Sao Paulo and Rio.
