People stereotype New Yorkers as being rude, curt, or mean--but that's not the case. I think that they just have a lower tolerance for bullshlt (which I appreciate).
Probably the best way I've ever seen someone put it.

It's a secret! We don't usually let other people know this about us.

With all of the cell phone usage, texting, impatient attitudes, erractic driving across the Eastern Seaboard (including the Southeast), I consider many places full of rude people.

I have to give New Yorkers a lot of credit. I was down there a few weeks ago for my friend's wedding and I was trying to figure out how to get somewhere on the subway...a guy noticed we were a bit confused so he stood there for ten minutes with my friend and me and explained several different options we had to get where we needed to be. He totally didn't need to do so, but he did.

Growing up in Manhattan, I saw that all the time. People base us off of stereotypes that aren't true.

Stereotypes that aren't true or are dated...that's why I get frustrated when some idiot says "I'll never go to Boston because it's so racist! Barry Bonds said so!"

Ya dude, you're basing the racism off race riots in the 1970s...it has been 40 years. Oh well!
