Gregariousness is not the same thing as friendliness. I consider friendly to mean neighborly, respectful and empathetic. Not sweet as pie to your face and catty behind it.

Default new yorkers are very friendly

Wow...I've been to new york way too many times I can't even count..
And each and every time, I've experienced friendly, helpful people, and a warm inviting atmosphere.
New yorkers get a bad rep but they are by far friendlier than many other places I've been to. And consider this, new york is a "melting pot" of nationalities and cultures so even more so...new york is to be applauded.

I live in VA so can't vote for here, but have met some of the friendliest people ever and some of the most idiotic ever. Definitely not confined to just one state. Some of the states I've been to that really stuck out for friendliness, meaning it surprised me was California from LA to SF. NY, specifically NYC. Always come across friendly people there. Central and western PA. Always feel welcomed in Pittsburgh. It's one of my favorite cities because of this. As far as passing through, the southern states don't feel as friendly as they're cracked up to be, but not unfriendly either. Except for that one time I broke down in GA along i95 and the tow truck driver was overly friendly until he found out I was from VA, then it got cold real fast. That was a very weird sensation for me. But as others have brought out, there's friendly and rude people everywhere. I tend to only remember friendly encounters more though, lifes too short to dwell on every rude person you come across, and they definitely don't deserve to be remembered either.
