I have never said that. I've been to NYC before, as i've mentioned a million times on this forum now that my dad's side of the family is from Brooklyn! I probably have more authority to say things about NYC than any New Yorker on here has to say about Texas. And I honestly don't care if everybody waves at me or not. But when vendors talk to me like they have a problem with me I most certainly am going to take that the wrong way. My family (and other visitors to the city) were the only people who didn't act like I just slapped them in the face the entire time I was there.

The black people in Philly were the nicest I've experienced. Even though most the whites I met weren't so nice.

People are rude to you if you're rude to them....that's how it works here.

I find that hard to believe, but that's just me.

I don't. For someone who has lived in the NYC metro for over 20 years and seen a fair bit of the rest of the country, the region is a cesspool. NYC and Northern NJ are by far the rudest parts of the country.

No disrespect but no its not. I spent time on Long Island recently and I still remember a few days before I left I got about 3 good mornings from people I've never met nor seen before. In no way is the NYC metro a cesspool.

Hello to everyone! My husband and I have been to Kentucky numerous times and we met the most wonderful people in America. If you are nice to people, you get that back no matter where you are, wether it be in Kentucky or Hawaii or anywhere in the world.

Yup, there are nice and nasty people everywhere. It doesn't alter the reality of the situation. People realize just how rude the NYC metro area and Northern NJ are overall, which is why they've been continuously listed on here and are infamous for a lack of hospitality, civility, and basic manners.
