NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The nerve!
Travel + Leisure magazine has determined New York is now the rudest city in America, knocking three-time champion Los Angeles out of the top spot.
Some New Yorkers tell 1010 WINS’ Terry Sheridan we’re just misunderstood.
1010 WINS’ Terry Sheridan reports
“There are great people in New York, we’re just in a rush,” one man said. “New York is an upbeat place… we don’t sleep, you know, 24/7 – go, go, go.”
“We want to get to where we gotta go,” another man said. “It’s not a bad city, I’ve been to other places where they’re ruder.”
Judging by the results, there did seem to be a trend: the bigger the city, the bigger the attitude.
People in smaller cities tend to take life a little easier, so it may come as no surprise that New Orleans, Savannah and Charleston were all ranked in the top five cities for friendliness.
Everything moves at a New York minute in the Big Apple, so every once in a while, we may lose our patience with tourists when they stop in the middle of the sidewalk to gawk at the skyscrapers.
Here’s the full list:
- New York City
- Washington, D.C.
- Los Angeles
- Dallas/ Forth Worth
- Orlando, Fl
- Las Vegas
- San Francisco
- Providence, RI
- San Diego
- Salt Lake City
