A 400 year old region in the northeastern United States named after England (no shit!).

It contains the states of Massachusetts (the cultural heart of the region), Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. New England is hilly and verdant and full of old-growth forests. Massachusetts has its baseball, Rhode Island has its beaches, Maine has its lobster, New Hampshire has its cows, and Vermont has its skiing.

Perhaps Connecticut USED to be a part of New England, but now its just "New" New Jersey -- complete with big-haired soccer moms, guidos with gelled up hair, gaudy "mcmansion" subdivisions, Yankees and Giants fans, vast parking lots, garbage dumps, strip malls, NYC rail stations, and rivers of raw sewage. Connecticut is far from the green pastures (literally) of the true New England.

Unlike the New Yorkish Connecticut people, real New Englanders pride themselves in being modest, educated, and making yummy clam chowdah. They also take great pride in their sports teams.
From an actual Boston area radio show transcript (talking about politics in New England):

"...let's be real Connecticut, is part of New York not New England."

Everyone thinks of New England as the most stuck-up and rudest people in all of the US..then why was New Hampshire voted as the most livable state in 2005? Don't judge New England before you've spent time or lived here, it's awesome.
Just because New England has private schools doesn't mean we're stuck up. We're very friendly :)

The best damn region in the country. With the best damn football team, the best damn baseball team..and a hockey team and a basketball team. Cold as hell place here only the strongest men can survive and the weak cry.

The only region of the United States that actually has four seasons. We New Englanders are ready for anything!
If you don't live in New England, you don't really know what summer, autumn, winter, and spring really are.

Just like the song says, it really is the spirit of America. Beautiful country, great schools, great food, rich history, intelligent people. Not to mention real weather. New England has everything, from oceans to mountains to lakes to countryside to cities. Best sports teams too. I mean there is a damn good reason why you New York bastards flock up here every year like seagulls to breadcrumbs.

People hate us because are the last remaining bit of what America was founded on.

New England? Nah, more like Old America...
To all people not from New England...

Don't hate us because we still have standards.

The six greatest states in the country. In the New England states, you will deal with fewer rednecks and far less ignorance, as most of the ivy league schools can be found here. The vacation spots are unbeatable and most people dress decent. In the fall, the foliage is a major tourist attraction. During the winter months, people visit to stay in lodges or ski. In the spring and summer, the beaches are crowded and the small towns earn the most money by housing all of the vacationers who decide to stay at Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Each state has its own perks... Oh yeah, did I mention that the Patriots are better than any other team?
Guy 1: "You're from New England? You must be a fuckin' Democrat hippie."

Guy: "No, I'm not a hippie, but yes, I do have more money than you."

The six north-easternmost American states, located north and west of New York (north of Long Island, which is part of NY). Historically, eastern New York is occasionally included as part of New England (Vermont was actually part of NY at one point), but today it consists of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
