Made up of 14 states in the Union, the residents of the East Coast often seem to consider themselves, their states, their institutions, their history, their traditions and their beliefs superior to all others in the US. It is typical to hear an east-coaster speak derogatively about the people in the west, or the middle of the country. They often make an obvious point about how superior they believe themselves to be, in sophistication and in values.

However, what this < third of the country fails it realize is that their attitudes about themselves are entirely provincial. No one outside the east coast cares about their self-perceived superiority of which they constantly feel the need to remind everyone (particularly themselves).

Furthermore, is the east coast producing much real value for this country? Law, politics, and finance are their specialty industries. (HQ'd in NY, Wall Street, and Washington D.C.) Three sectors that have produced wonderful benefits for society.

The West Coast on the other hand is the home of places like Silicon Valley, from which a plethora of beneficial technologies, including the internet, emerged.

So while the east coast continues to produce most of the nation's lawyers, bankers, and politicians, while reminding themselves and everyone else of their superiority over the rest of the nation, the west coast enjoys both far more sunshine as well as the production of actual inventions of value that improve the well being of people everywhere.

I don't even have to explain the places. In the east coast, Gangstas shed blood EVERY DAY. Its a tough life. In the west coast, Rappers talk about all the women, money and Gunz they don't have. It's just LYIN'. Old school hip hop from east was original. Then in the later 90s, the west coast took a stand against the east coast. It what they did was successful. But what they did was throw crap out of their mouths.At that time, there were still east coast rappers. It was like a new genre. Then came the 2000s. The east coast became familiar with this type of music. They are the same as the west coast now with one difference: What they say is real. Now, throw all the hatin' at me but remember I am telling you the sad truth.
East coast is the home to Hip Hop/rap legends and great rappers such as, Jay-Z, Slick Rick, Kool G Rap, Public enemy, Wu tang clan, Big daddy kane, Mobb Deep, Tribe called quest, Gangstarr, Nas(Underground), Rakim, Run-Dmc, Raekwon, and so much more. Also good djs and comedians are here.(5th platoon and Dave Chappelle.
West Coast is the home of the Fag Phone Symbol.

The best part of the U.S. Innovators in music (jazz, punk, hip-hop), architecture (see New York and Chicago for more info), culture (Metropolitan Opera, Boston Symphony Orchestra, CBGB) and more). Birthplace of the American movie industry (headquartered in New York and Chicago before it decamped for LA). Hated and envied by the inferior West Coast, which doesn't have an original idea to its fake-tanned anorexic bitch-ass du-ragged empty head.
What the East Coasts creates, the West Coast steals. Don't forget your roots.

The Eastern side of the United States. Includes New England, and also States such as Florida, South and North Carolina. Though, used mostly to refer to the Northern States.
I'm flying over to the East Coast next Thursday.

If you have not seen almost every state and city on the East Coast than why the fuck are you critizing it? The East Coast Streches from Maine to Florida. Some main cities are, Boston, New York City, Newark, Philly, Charleston, Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, just to name a couple. We have the smart New Englanders, the Rich New Yorkers, Kickass New Jersey, Amazing Philly, CRUNKED Atlanta, Hot Miami, The Carolinas and everything else. If your from the West Coast your either, a plastic, fake tan, hollister, whore. A homosexual that likes to rollerskate. A ghetto ignorant retard. Or a Complete weirdo. All the West Coasters have is California. Oregon and Washington suck ass. EAST COAST IS THE BEAST COAST.
West Coaster: We are the best part of America.

East Coasteer: That's why you only have one good state. Wow California might be good but we have Boston, New York City, New Jersey, Philly, Atlanta, Miami, and everything in between so fuck off.

1.Long, broad region of United States that goes from Maine in the north to Florida in the south. When most people think of the east coast, they think of the area between Boston and DC. This is one of the most industrialized regions of the US besides the rust belt streaching from Pittsburgh to Chicago via Ohio and Indiana. The region contains some of the most prestigious universities in America as well as a lot of history, but is controlled mainly by socialists and is not fun to walk outside in the summer in this region due to the heat and smog.
The one thing the east coast has going for it is it is the east coast--- consequently, it is also its main down point.
