For “Algonquin,” I suggest “Northern Appalachians.” As someone who grew up in the Catskill Mountains a little north of where New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania meet, ~~I’ve always identified myself as being part of the “Mid-Atlantic.”~~* “Northern Appalachians” would be the next best description.
Within New York, “Algonquin” would include the Adirondacks, the Thousand Island region, the Finger Lakes, the Leatherstocking region , the Southern Tier, and the Catskills. Except for the Adirondacks and Catskills, those regions are pretty flat though. Within Pennsylvania, I’ve always considered the Poconos, Alleghenies and Susquehannahs as “Northern Appalachians,” although I would find it reasonable that Appalachia could leak into Pennsylvania. For Vermont, as someone who now lives in New England, I think all of it, including Burlington and around Lake ~~George~~ Champlain, is part of New England, even though historically, Vermont used to be part of New York.
The following is tongue-in-cheek, but the orange in New York could just be called “Upstate.” New Yorkers would know what I’m talking about.
EDIT: Mentioned about the flatness of some New York regions within “Algonquin”/”Northern Appalachian”.
EDIT 2: I know I contradict myself in a different comment below. I am more “Northeast” than “Mid-Atlantic.”
EDIT 3: Lake Champlain, not Lake George… I knew that didn’t look right…
