The important question is how does one pronounce it...

Shou-der,

Shou-DARE (say it Frenchie!)

or

CHOW-der

Definitely NE.

I'm from NYC and even I like NE better.

The only good thing to come out of Boston is NE Clam Chowder. Otherwise, that city is the "armpit" of America

Don't like either.. But I'll vote for Manhattan because honestly, does anything really good come out of New England?

NE is the only type we really get in California. I've tried Manhattan style once and liked it. If I have to vote, I'd choose NE.

I like both...depends on what the mood is....but more for the NE version.

And anything below New England is the armpit....people never learn.

You do realize that there's more to New England than Boston, right?
