Moderator cut: reply to earlier post

i would also add Boston to the list of cities that have many people with an attitude and not very often is it positive.

Being from CT, I always felt that New Yorkers were pushy rude and full of attitude, but recently, I've rethought the culture and realized people are actually very nice in New York, just in a different kind of way. We (I include myself since the culture is pretty similar in CT) are brief, quick, and straight to the point, but quite nice and friendly, just not over the top or fake, and I really respect that about this part of the country.

A few years ago I would have said new england and NYC, but now I'm going to have to say Dallas and Houston. I'm sure there are a GREAT amount of people from those cities, and when I went to school in Waco, I met a lot of wonderful people from there. However, the attitude was pretty intense for a lot of people from those areas. I found many people from the Houston and Dallas area to be a little superficial, fake nice, and competitive, and I didn't like that. Again, with that said, I met a lot of great people from those cities too- but I was surprised by how many negative people I met coming from those two areas- especially the suburbs. I went to college with a lot of Katy, Sugarland, Woodlands people and found the people to be about 50/50, half we were nice people, half I didn't care for, but the percent of people with attitudes did strike me as high. Again, this was just my experience and I know a lot of is the culture is just very different. I'm sure most of them would come up to the Tristate area and be offended by us. I'm sure people have had many negative experiences from my neck of the woods!

I think NYC gets a bad rap. When I went there people minded their own business, and didn't really notice you, but when you talked to some of them they were very nice and helpful.

Hmm, based on my experiences, I'd say it's a toss up between Newark and L.A.
