Defining A Functioning 'Region'

The I-91/Connecticut River corridor, stretching from the Connecticut coast to Northampton, Mass. is calling itself the "Knowledge Corridor."

"Can a collection of towns and cities strung along an interstate highway passing through two states actually declare itself a region, give itself a name, sell the brand, and increase the impact of their collective assets? That’s exactly what the state of Connecticut wondered a year ago in commissioning research that essentially asked: Is the I-91/Connecticut River corridor, stretching from the Connecticut coast to Northampton, Mass. a functioning region? ... These folks are calling themselves the Knowledge Corridor."
