I think it was time for you to move away several years ago, you are obviously totally over the place. And sorry, but's not Atlanta that has the problem....
Atlanta can't be too friendly if you're a reflection of the average person in Atlanta, as you'll resort to name calling at the drop of a dime when people don't agree with you, and when people present facts to you which reveal what's actually lurking behind the facade.

I'm not from Georgia, I happen to live here by choice. I also travel for a living, and have been to every city listed. Have you?


Actually I have been to every city listed. I actually have family, have lived in the area or have ties in some way to about 6 of the cities listed. The only one I haven't really spent much time in but just maybe passing through would be Houston. FYI, not that I have anything to prove to you or have to prove anything, that's not what this is about. You lashed out, I was just stating my opinion like everyone else.. Just a friendly reminder, lets stay on Scrip/Subject my friend!!

The only one that lashed out was you my friend, with a ridiculous tirade against 'fake-friendly backstabbers' and other ridiculousness.

Yes, lets do get back to the point of the thread - the most friendly big city, not a list of why you hate where you live and work.

I agree. Baltimore is a super friendly city. That was one of the things I really enjoyed about my time there. It’s interesting because it is distinctly “East Coast” in that people are definitely more straightforward and blunt, but it doesn’t come off as grating like it does in Boston and New York. I felt like that was one of the few places on the east coast where I could actually see myself living, partly because I just really liked the vibe of the people there.
