has friendlier people?

1) The Philadelphia, PA and surrounding suburbs such as in the Montgomery, Chester, and Delaware county cities/towns.

- OR -

2) The New York City,NY area (Northern/Central NJ, NYC, Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, Westchester)?


This is part of my reasearch in a possible move.

Thanks in advance

Yeah, Philadelphia people for sure. Especially in the burbs. You seem to see less of a city mentality in the Philly burbs than in the NY/NJ burbs.

Philly 'burbs. No question. Lived in Bucks and Montgomery counties for a combined total of 20 years. Live in South Jersey now, lots of friendly people here too, but I have to say that our friends tend to be those also transplanted from PA. It is not intentional, just happened that way!

While we also meet people who are here from NY, and N. Jersey, there is a different vibe there. We're friendly to everyone, but it is not always reciprocated. Okay, whatever rows your boat!

(As a side note: just returned from a week's visit to State College, PA. Met the FRIENDLIEST people I have ever met in Pennsylvania).

First off I made a typo - "reasearch" should be research sorry about that.

I want to thank christina0001, enviroman, and Adream for your responses as I do appreciate them very much.

Hope to hear even more from anyone else.

I did visit the Main Line area from Paoli down close to the Philadelphia county line about a month ago along with Media/Havertown and found the few people that I interacted with to be friendly. Since I don't currently reside in the area to be there always I needed to know from the permanant residents or from people who had some type of tenure there. Thanks again!

I wished that Pennsylvania would come back with those license plates that said "You've got a friend in Pennsylvania".
