That seems to be the criteria for not being an "rude" New Yorker.

I like New Yorkers. Yeah, they talk fast but we've been lost while traveling through NY and they always go out of their way to be helpful. I welcome Ny'rs in Florida.

Mental - have you read anyof my threads??? That is clearly what I have been saying all along. You came off as very nice with the "Welcome to Broward County"... and the you went off with the remember to adapt to Florida. That was rude - shall we agree that was rude anyone? You are making the assumption that I'm going to compare the 2 places and state that NY is better. Now, why in the world would I move somewhere else, if I thought that the place where I already dwell is better. Try not to be so defensive. We aren't all bad from here and all Floridians aren't great. Is that fair to say?

Chelsa, probably not intentional. He/she may be just used to folks doing that and wanted to remind you, that's all.

I realize that Pooring, but my point is that if you want to be treated nicely, you have to treat others nicely, lead by example. You can't tell someone to not get an attitude with an attitude. you know what I mean?

What southern culture in Naples? Golf courses? Big Hotels? Maybe at one time there was, but it was remade into an area to attract tourists and snowbirds. If there is any local culture at all, it is probably more "Hispanic" than Southern.

Naples more Hispanic than Southern? I mean, I would think that Naples is anything but Southern, I have heard the stories about how rude and snobby people there can be, but hispanic now too?

in South Naples and it relfects that in the shops in those neighborhoods. There isn't any southern culture and that was my point. Tropical/beach culture geared to tourists, snowbirds, and retirees, yes.

Oh, yeah, probably a large Mexican population due to the large amount of construction that was going on in previous yrs.

For all the talk about adapting to new places, the flip side is that newcomers to an area often have something interesting and different to offer to that place. When both sides treat each other with respect and don't automatically default to the whole 'but that's how we've always done it here/in New York' spiel then interesting things that enrich a place can happen.

One of the strengths of the state, IMO, is that kind of dynamic give and take that's created one of the most vibrant economies and cultures in the country down here.
