As a native New Yorker I can testify that our summers can be horrendously humid and hot, with going underground into our non-air conditioned Subway being the absolute worst. It seems like whenever I fly back here, one of the first things I notice is how muggy the air feels.

That does make those rare, crisp days feels nicer, but it sure as hell isn't worth the routine of dealing with the high humidity.

How on earth are the gulf coast cities 8, 9, and 10?

And Chicago is 3? It's humid in the summer but you will have days where it won't even reach 80 in the middle of the summer.

The subway cars are air conditioned, but not the stations

This is probably more a case of cities where the most fans are sold and households with None or less air conditioners. More major cities in the south have households and reasons to .... have air conditioners over fans as a must for more of the year.

It's funny that all of the NE corridor cities are mentioned except Baltimore.

Agreed. Both of those cities are muggy as hell. I'm assuming hell is pretty muggy and not a dry heat. Maybe I'm wrong. Don't want to find out.

Most people don't have air conditioning in the North so they are actually exposed to the weather 24/7
During the summer.

Clearly they've never set foot in Orlando, in the center of the state minus ocean breezes...
