There is one New England state missing from your list of Northeast states...

Hints:
-It has 486 miles of coastline despite having a geographic area of only 1,214 square miles.

-the second most densely populated state in the US after New Jersey.

-The Brotherhood was filmed in the state's capital and much of the rest of the state has provided locations for such films as the Great Gatsby and Moonrise Kingdom.

-The animated series Family Guy is set in a fictional town here.

-some of the best Italian food in the country is found just 2 miles east of my house.

And, no, as much as I love Massachusetts it isn't part of it. ;)

Ha - I thankfully don't have the accent. That is mostly a Providence County phenomenon.

Anyway, the winner's prize - (FTY, even though I did make it too easy) is a 'gagga', on me, should you ever pass through.

If you are taking any medications for ulcers or esophageal reflux an equally offensive local prize can be chosen. LOL...

Actually the only, and best place, to get these is downtown at 3am (from Haven Brothers, a cart next to city hall), with a buzz on. After, of course, you've had your shots and taken a Zantac.
