Based upon your experiences, which cities have more of a nice-'n-friendly population and which have more of a “not-so-friendly” vibe? I’m not talking about crime or liberal-ness, just the general level of friendliness and neighborliness.
I was only in Toronto for 1 day but I seemed to encounter a certain level of rudeness there, and of course NYC . The only overly-friendly places I’ve been to have been tourist towns.
Other people I know have offered these:
Dallas – rude
Austin – friendly
Charleston – friendly
New Orleans – frinedly
Phoenix - friendly
Boston – rude
Montreal – rude
For the sensitive: These are general perceptions by individuals. No one is labeling all residents of a given place as good or bad.
