In NY most of the dislike comes from Upstate NY attitude toward NYC/Long Island. As for Upstate NY, some of the cities are thought to be undesirable, not so much hated or disliked.

In California, living in the Bakersfield - Fresno corridor means that you're __________ (fill in degrading comment here). Also, L.A. as a whole is debased largely because of L.A.'s east side. West LA and communities outside the city limits actually have tremendous character and vibrancy.

I think people in most of outstate Minnesota don't like the Twin Cities because they are such a drastic change from the rest of the state, and people tend to think of the city people as rude, loud, and dirty. I also think that the other mid sized cities tend to rival each other a little bit. Duluth vs. Rochester vs. Fargo-Moorhead vs. St. Cloud.

In California, central valley takes the win.

South Dakota is pretty much split in half...East River and West River. Neither side cares much for the other. I'm on Team West River.

New Jersey: Typically divided into North, Central, and South Jersey. People focus a lot on the industrial part of the turnpike and around Newark airport as well as the idiotic reality TV shows that take place in this part of the state. Parts of it are truly crime ridden, overpriced, and dirty but Northwest Jersey is pretty rural and very scenic and there are a lot of wealthy communities as well.


South Jersey is seen as "hick" by people in my area and kind of backwards by most people in North/central Jersey besides the shore and the wealthier suburbs of Philadelphia. I don't think Central Jersey is hated at all or included in the north jersey vs. south jersey rivalry.

Not that many people who were born and raised in eastern South Dakota see it for the boring, cold place in which it is.. only people who have moved there from other areas. Natives love it here... but one thing most can agree on, people love the western side of the state more. It's warmer, prettier all around... though some say the people on the west side of the state act strange.. people on the east side definitely act 'midwestern' like what you'd see in Iowa or MN.. fairly neutral accent too.

Another universally accepted trait of people in eastern South Dakota.. they all love MN, the twin cities, and extoll the virtues of the twin cities. Many are vikings fans too.

I will say this.. if a person loves to ice fish, there's no better place in the country to live, outside maybe northern MN or northern North Dakota. Lake freeze hard and stay frozen for a couple months. We do have natural glacial lakes around here, more than enough space for everyone to have their own ice shack.
