Not compensating. Just not afraid of long words like our fellow Americans in Texas or Florida.

I always wondered why New York isn't included in New England. It certainly sounds as if it should be.

It was a confederation of those colonies back in the day. The name has just stuck.

@bitterblue - York is a city in England, so it's reasonable to guess that New York might be a city in New England. But it isn't.

New York was founded by the dutch and was called New Amsterdam before England reclaimed the land and the name stuck. Not technically one of the first english colonies, but it has ties.

As a New Yorker, I know for a fact that New York is not apart of New England. First of All, It is Larger than all of them. Second of all it is South of them. The Upper Atlantic states are considered to be a part of New England, The Middle Atlantic states (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland), are below New England. Therefore, New York is not a part of New England. Also we don't classify ourselves to be New Englanders.

And the only one-syllable state of the 50. It's physically as big as the other 5 put together, so no need to compensate by making it sound longer.

No, it's not. New England was named as such in the 1620s, at a time when New York was still part of the Dutch colony New Netherland. The English didn't get their paws on it until the late 1660s.

It feels like there's too much time for this quiz. You get 2 minutes to type 6 states. In that time period, you might as well type all 50.
