2 Cities From New York State Named Rudest In America
Are we rude, or polite here in New York State? 2 cities recently made the list of the rudest cities in America, and sadly they are both from New York.
Business Insider and SurveyMonkey both took a look at how polite we can be all across America. In an article called "The rudest cities in America, ranked according to a new Insider survey" New York made the list twice.
First though, how did they rank all of the cities?
The rankings are based on two online polls conducted in October and November 2019 — American adults were asked to choose the five rudest cities from a list of the 50 largest metro areas in the country. The two polls for this survey had a total of 2,092 respondents with a margin of error of 2%: 1,075 respondents were collected 10/25/19 - 10/26/19, and 1,017 respondents were collected 11/22/19 - 11/23/19."
So the data is in, who made the list?
