I also much prefer the direct, to-your-face honesty of New York to the passive-agressive BS you encounter in other parts of the country....like the "smile to your face/talk behind your back" Midwesterners, or the "quiet while I rant on Yelp/Twitter/Blogspot over my IPhone" Bay Area.
I think this is based on things like holding the door for a person and other acts of niceness...
Mid westerners are very direct.

I'm really surprised Detroit didn't make the list.
There is a difference between rude and tough.

Honestly thought Boston would be higher. Really...Miami and Washington DC?
Where's Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago?

Florida definitely has a NY/NJ problem. Baltimore? I love it and it's a mess. Chicago? I was astonished at the lack of attitude among natives there. If I could stand the harsh weather I'd consider living there.

I guess LA "improved" from being number #1 a year ago.

So what constitutes rudeness? Keeping to one's self does not denote rudeness. That can come from shyness or being reserved. Of all the places I've lived, I've got to say that Nashville, TN, was the rudest. People were SO SWEET to me while being really ugly at the same time. What's more, this was not done only to outsiders; they did it to each other. After 19 years, I couldn't wait to get away. The nicest? NYC. A New Yorker might hate your guts, but it won't keep him from being your best friend.

A friend that "hates your guts"? Doesn't sound like any kind of friend to me...
