Certain parts of cities are more accepting of outsiders than others. For example in Philadelphia places like Center City, University City, Fairmount, East Passyunk, Queen Village, Northwest Philly seem to be very welcoming and transplant heavy while places like Kensington, Bridesburg, Packer Park, Strawberry Mansion, etc. may not be.

That's just a politically correct platitude. Culture is a real thing.

You'll find natives in some of the NW neighborhoods too such as a majority of the Georgia Ave neighborhoods, Columbia Heights, Shaw, LeDroit Park, Mount Pleasant, Adams Morgan, etc. living side by side with transplants and foreign immigrants from East and West Africa, Central America, and the Caribbean. Sometimes natives and transplants do bump heads in Petworth and Park View and there were a few occasions of tensions between native African Americans and "FOB" Ethiopian immigrants in the Shaw and U Street neighborhoods on the basis of the Little Ethiopia/9th Street NW area but other than those occasions, it seems that natives and transplants and immigrants get along well in much of NW DC. Relations tend to be different in parts of NE and SE however.
