NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York is number one again, but this time it’s for being the rudest and most arrogant state in the country.

A new survey from Business Insider asked 1,600 Americans to answer questions about states they don’t live in, like which were the drunkest, the smartest or had the silliest accents.

“The results were hilarious, informative and tell you everything you need to know about the dynamic between the states,” Business Insider said on its website.

It found that 39 percent of those polled felt New York was the most arrogant state and 44 percent felt it was the rudest.

Georgia and Minnesota tied for nicest. Louisiana was judged as the drunkest state and Massachusetts took first place for weirdest accents, followed close behind by Louisiana, Alabama, Minnesota, New York and New Jersey.

On the positive side, the Empire State was ranked as having the best food in the country (Alaska takes home the prize for the worst food) and Americans think New York has the second-smartest people after Massachusetts.

New York is also home to the best — and worst — sports fans.

The poll found California was America’s favorite state and Texas was the one most would like to see kicked out of the country.
