Apparently, we've gotten ruder. Whatever.
After finishing in sixth place last year, Boston lands at No. 5 on this year's Travel and Leisure annual survey of America's rudest cities. Here's what they had to say about us, as if you care.
"Are they just a bunch of smart mouths? Folks in Beantown ranked near the top forintelligence, but that didn't endear them to visitors. Bostonians might also be guilty of gloating about their championship sports teams. But visitors still love the city as acultural getaway, and ranked it highly for its festive 4th of July."
New York leapfrogged Los Angeles the top spot this year, which is no surprise, of course. Miami finished second, followed by Washington, D.C., and L.A. Apparently Philadelphia had some sort of happy renaissance since they fell out of the Top 5. Must have been all the success the Eagles had this year.
So, just how rude are we? Let us know. Or don't, we really don't care.
