OK, but when people talk about "the coasts" they typically aren't referring to insular places in Central/Western NY State, and when talking about the "interior" they typically aren't referring to Houston or Texas-Mexican border.

"The coasts" typically means the Northeast Corridor, Coastal CA, and the Coastal PNW. "The interior" wouldn't really apply to South Texas and its centuries of Hispanic settlement.
