The only part of the United States that really matters. The East Coast, Maine through Virginia, is home to America's largest city and the global financial capital...New York, or "the city" since all the rest pale in comparison. The East is home to other important cities such as Washington DC (wait, isn't that the capital?), Boston (wait, isn't that our smartest city?), and Philadelphia (wait, isn't where America was born?). The East Coast has the country's finest resort areas at its various islands and shores (Maine, the Cape, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Long Island, the Jersey Shore, and Delaware Coast) and mountain areas (Poconos, Berkshires, Catskills). The East Coast also has the best food (everyone else THINKS they know pizza, subs, and bagels). The East is home to our best colleges (ever realize all of the Ivy League schools are in the East?), public transportation that makes the rest of the country look like sub-Saharan Africa and, we have class. Apparently the rest of the country forgot what it meant to get dressed up...no it isn't your "nice" jeans. We still know that you are supposed to wear belts AT ALL TIMES, not supposed to show underwear and when someone is talking to you..keep eye contact.
Sure East Coast people are skimpy on the "politeness" but at least we are honest. We won't smile and laugh just to be agreeable...we will form our own opinions and make them known. In sum, remember, it is called the Eastern Standard for a reason.
West Coast person: The East is cold, smelly, and everyone is mean.

East Coast person: F*ck you. Try to get an education in Oregon or Nevada or California or wherever you are from and then come talk to me. Oh yeah.....your food is nasty, Hollister is nasty and try to remember the pants next time you are supposed to dress up. What's with your obsession with blue jeans and flip flops (with socks by the way)? Ever heard of shoes? Oh, they are called sneakers in case you were wondering, unless you are planning to play tennis.

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.

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.

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.
