I think that NYC has become a friendly city (which it was not 20 years ago). It is also a large melting pot of many cultures so there is a great tolerance of people from different places.

Seattle. They welcomed me to the neighborhood with cakes and pies. My aunt lost her purse and someone turned it in with all the money. Met many people who became life long friends.

The OP didn't mention specific size of city so I would throw in the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro metro area in North Carolina. It's the most friendly/welcoming area I've ever experienced....regardless of nationality, religious affiliation (or lack thereof), sexual orientation or gender. It's literally a world melting pot thanks to the two major universities (Duke University and the University of North Carolina) and their affiliated medical centers/research facilities, plus the massive Research Triangle Park in Durham which is home to many international research, biomedical and tech firms.

You will find that most large U.S. cities and metro areas fit this description. They are very diverse.

I also visited New Orleans a few months ago and found it to be unusually friendly and welcoming. But that's probably because they really need a lot of tourism there.

Top pick - Fort Worth, TX

Then, in no particular order:

New Orleans, LA
Annapolis, MD
Oklahoma City, OK
Birmingham, AL
Memphis, TN
Colorado Springs, CO
Little Rock, AR
Greenville, OH
Minneapolis, MN

I was very pleasantly surprised at some of these by the way.

My choice as well. Savannahians are very engaging to strangers.

The two places are worlds apart culturally but you ask about friendliness so those are my answers.
