Everyone has a list of the good and the bad. 2,005 people survey in the US came to the conclusion that the Golden Rule is absent in at least one American city. Brittany Jones Cooper on which cities topped the list:
New York City has long had a reputation for being a rude place, with overzealous fans (Go Yankees!) and annoyed locals darting in and out of crowds of tourists. But it’s not just the East Coast getting a bad rap: 15 percent of respondents pointed to Los Angeles as the second-unfriendliest city in the world.
Of course, the assumption is that those who participated in the survey had traveled to many other countries to make an objective decision. That might explain why Paris, France came in third on the list.
