Piedmont is the plateau region of the eastern United States which lies between the Atlantic Coastal Plain, from which it is divided by the fall line, and the eastern mountain ranges, the Appalachian Mountains. The width of the Piedmont varies, being quite narrow above the Delaware River (and non-existent above the Hudson River), but nearly 300 miles (475 km) wide in the state of North Carolina. The Piedmont region of North Carolina consists of three major metropolitan areas: the Piedmont Triad, Metrolina, and the Research Triangle, all of which contribute to a geographical phoenomenon known as the Piedmont Crescent.
