I don't agree. New Yorkers are just misunderstood.

I'm a transplant and I agree with you. I'm one of the rare transplants that isn't snobby.

Boastful, perhaps. But not snobbish.

That's about all they are good for. Now taking that snob list and comparing it to the forums here for snobbiest, who would be number one?

NYC has some hardcore ultra-snobs (most of whom are transplants, as mentioned), but as far as breadth of snobbiness among the general population, Californians (SF, San Diego, and LA), Portlanders (Oregon), Bostoners, and Minneapolitans take the cake by a mile.

Porlanders, are the worst because they are so passive aggressive about, dropping hints to try to make you praise their undying falme of superiority.

People get off on being snobby in NYC. For some reason there is an unwritten law that to be a true NY'er you need to be ruthless and crude. Maybe that is true in certain situations but for the majority of the time it DOES NOT hold true. The worst offenders are the transplants who feel the need to try and fit in.

The media's current portrayal of NYC doesn't help either. Sex And The City Etc.

However a lot of cities around the world are turning into this sort of environment not just NYC. FABULOUS is what is trending now. It's all about YOU. Models pretty people people with money style glamour notoriety. Give it a few more years and hopefully people will tire of their "fabulous" self and we can get onto something better.

Until then get your wall up.

You don't know what being judged is, until people see you on a bus stop in L.A. I know from personal(painful) experience.

True, they don't judge you by what you drive in NYC..half the people here don't even have cars. But anything and everything else is fair game. How you're dressed. What you do for work. Where you went school. What neighborhood or borough you live in. On and on.
