Well, though I don't think such threads helpful, or on crime, or others that we know are city issues worst then others....

Reading a thread in the General US forum with this link and map of states and regions
split between 3-temperaments that seem to dominate.
- Friendly and Conservative
- Relaxed and Creative
- Temperamental and Uninhibited

America's Mood Map: Find Which State Matches Your Personality | Time

Guess there is a reason Philly and even Pitts ..... get flack like this thread topic in their forums.

The Northeast gets the regional - Temperamental and Uninhibited blue color used

But PENNSYLVANIA - get the dark blue STRONGEST claim at being .....

- Temperamental and Uninhibited -- apparently Philly is front and center in our states label here. That even the state gets labeled.

Philly is taking a hit over in the Jersey forum. A family is considering vacationing at the NJ shore and is considering, wants to visit New York City, Philadelphia, and/or Washington DC. There are just a few replies, but the OP was advised to skip Philly and go to Boston because there's more to do, and skip Philly and just go to NYC instead.

While in center City, you’ll meet a large variety of great and colorful people...it’s a lot of transplants and college students. Step my way in south Philly and you’ll be itching to get out.

We really only like to uber downtown or walk to enjoy passyunk....tucked behind all that are blocks and blocks of ****heads and their kids.

I scanned that thread and only saw that one poster pushing Boston. The other posts looked fine. Lots of posts now.

We just spent New Years in your city and absolutely loved it! People were extremely friendly and gave lots of recommendations while chatting with them. We were both mystified by the negative stereotypes. Only "rude" things we did notice were a lot of honking and somewhat aggressive drivers, but we didn't drive in the city fortunately. Overall, we left with a wonderful impression of the city, and it's now on our short list.

That is a very common experience. Philly is one of the better people cities, and most people are willing to help you, or at least not be rude.

I have just come back from a short trip and found my experience much the same. We didn't find any aggressive drivers until we came back to NY and everyone was gone. The best was actually a SEPTA agent at Jefferson Station who walked us to the track to get to our train. #nothingbadtosay

Glad you had a great trip.

A Philadelphian now in New York, I find Philly drivers to be worse lol. Even my friend who visited was like damn these people are more aggressive than New Yorkers. But that is just a product of a big city

Maybe I was just lucky, didn't get cut off once and not a single honk. I stayed out of Center City and mostly drove around the inner suburbs and NW Philly.
