Regions of the United States

Regions of the United States The Northeast The Northeast The Northeast can be subdivided into two smaller regions: New England: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Mid-Atlantic States: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia and

the District of Columbia Physical Geography of Northeast Northern Appalachian mountains run through most of the northeastern states, causing little farmland, except in valley areas. Deep bays exist, allowing for port towns. Jagged, rocky coastline in northern areas. Climate and Vegetation of Northeast:

No Dry Season- this area receives precipitation throughout the year. Cold, snowy winters and hot summers. Moderate growing season that decreases as you go north. Vegetation is mixed forests with deciduous and coniferous trees. Historical Geography of the

Northeast The Northeast has the longest history of European settlement . Historically, the Northeast has been the gateway to immigrants. Established itself as the financial and manufacturing hub early in the industrial revolution. Population Geography of the

Northeast Population is concentrated in the Megalopolis that runs from Boston to Washington (AKA Boswash). Includes the cities of Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington D.C. Also Pittsburgh and Buffalo. This is the most densely populated region in the United States. Economic Geography of the

Northeast The New England states have a long history of maritime industry, although forestry exists inland with a little farming. The Mid-Atlantic states dominate the financial sector of the U.S., advertising, manufacturing. This region is the home to most major corporations in the United States. Land Use in the Northeast

Dairy Farming (think Vermont) Farming Timber Maritime Activity Some Mining Note: As you go north, the growing season shortens, which limits farming. In part of the Northeast, timber is a primary economic activity.

New England Legacy New England is famous for its prep schools and is home to some of the most elite Universities in the world: Harvard, Yale, MIT, Boston College, Brown, and Dartmouth (just to name a few). One of the best resources New England has is its educated population.

Geography of Northeast: Mid-Atlantic South of New England, the Mid-Atlantic states enjoy warmer weather and a longer growing season. The economy has more farming activity and has less maritime activity, although major shipping waterways are present. Major cities are located on these major waterways: New York on the Hudson R.,

Philly is on the Delaware, and Baltimore is located on Chesapeake Bay. More on the Mid-Atlantic States This area is a transition zone between the Northeast (New England in particular) and the South, especially the states of Virginia and W. Virginia. Heritage is also centered on colonial times and the American Revolution,

much like New England. Home to Washington D.C., the political center of the U.S.
