Give me one large city and one small; one over 200,000 population, and one under.

I'd go with Minneapolis MN for over 200K and Grand Rapids MI for under 200K.

No other opinions, or does everyone agree?

It may be a matter of how you measure what "friendliness" is. What is the criteria?

Thanks. I should have realized the need to define the term. I'll use this definition.

Friendliness - taking an interest in other people, being warm and courteous

I honestly find people in Philly to be very friendly for the most part. I've had full conversations with complete strangers.

Columbus, Ohio. Coming from New Jersey it really is night and day.

I spent a month in Baltimore for work earlier this year and I was actually surprised at how friendly people were there. I visited DC a few times while I was out there and had a polar opposite experience. It's weird how two cities so close to each other can be so different but maybe it was just my unique experience.

I guess it isn't conclusively established that Baltimore is a "northern city" but I would group it more with the northeast cities than anywhere else.
