Sure the people may have a more "preppy, white-bred" vibe but that doesn't equate to racist. Many of the people and college students in Boston are so liberal minded, they would be horrid about the fact that people would think they're racist.

NYC- New Yorkers are not rude. Aloof and rushed on the surface is a better term to describe New Yorkers because of the "rat-race" lifestyle. Once you talk or get to know many New Yorkers they're quite friendly. I actually found downstate New Yorkers to be a lot more extroverted, outgoing, and more willing to meet new people than their fello
w Upstate New Yorkers.
I haven't had many good experiences with people from Boston, but then again, I rarely come across them.

I find most New Yorkers to be delightful.

Philly! It's not even close to even being a smaller version of NY. It's downtown is not even large. It's mid size for the size of this city. It's more of a historical city than a cosmopolitan city as its people usually point out.

There are definitely those who live up to the Boston stereotype, but from what I've observed it's not the majority.

Wow I never heard that one. But It does seem like when they do relocate out of NYC their always back visiting often.

Seattle, WA doesn't have pouring rain for 9 months straight per year. It's the drizzling type of rain most of the time. I didn't have to use an umbrella.

Little Rock, AR is not the most dominant Redneck city there is. You must be thinking Jackson, MS or Oklahoma City, OK. Little Rock is mini Memphis but excellent economy with 40% being African-American, some Hispanics, and mostly white collar workers working for government, education, finances, and insurance. There are also a few manufacturing industries for blue collar workers. I was impressed during my 4 years of living there.

Denver, CO actually has cold and dry winters. The closer you are to the Rockies, you can get snow.

Indianapolis, IN is not Naptown with everything in Downtown being closed by 5 PM.

Columbus, OH is not a Cowtown. Most cities in the Midwestern have agricultural lands outside the city limits anyway.

Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN (Twin Cities) is not in the Rust Belt.

Nashville, Chattanooga, & Knoxville, TN are not the Hillbilly Cities. Hillbillies actually live in more isolated, rural communities near or on mountains, such as Crossville, Cookeville, Crab Orchard, Townsend, Pittman Center, and Newport, etc.

Hipsters sleep in hotels? I thought they slept in backstreets with a needle stuck on their arm? Or is that bohemians? I always get those too lots mixed.

The stereotype for San Francisco, the Nanny State City, is that they are so full of themselves that they like to smell their own farts and their most common physical ailment comes from patting themselves on the back. I have never been to San Francisco so I'm unqualified to weigh in on the stereotype. For all I know it was started by some jealous people in Los Angeles with no bridge to jump off of.

NAPtown is a cooler way of saying IndiaNAPolis. Depending on who you ask, of course. Is the "everything in Downtown being closed by 5 PM" sentiment a common stereotype? I definitely agree with you. This one is false!

Hipsters try hard to not try. For Bohemians it comes more naturally.
