Philadelphia has been voted the most unfriendly city in Pennsylvania, according to Business Insider. The city of brotherly love is not so friendly after all, or maybe they don't like outsiders; many residents report they were taught to ¨keep to themselves¨.
According to the city's inhabitants, most are absorbed by their phones, refuse to let people merge in front of them, and are extremely loud in public places. Not only are they on their phones in public, but they are on speakerphone in public.
Philadelphia has a population of 5,785,000 people and growing. The breakdown of people is as follows: White Americans 38.5%, Black Americans 40.8%, Asian Americans 7.4%, and Hispanic/Latino Americans 15.4%. The median home cost is $184,100, and the median household income is $52,649.
Philadelphia's poverty rate is 23.3%, the third highest in the US. Possibly leading to a stressed-out environment, wondering where their next meal will come from.
Not only is Philadelphia one of the rudest cities, but it is also one of the unhappiest. Stating those living in the city suffer from low emotional and physical well-being, mixed with high levels of unemployment. Philadelphia also has a higher rate of violence and property crimes.
Philadelphia is not only the rudest Pennsylvania city, but overall depending on which report you read, it has been voted the rudest city in all of the USA. The second is Memphis, Tenn, and the third is New York City.
So if you decide to visit Philadelphia to visit the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, or for a Philly Cheesesteak, you at least know what to expect as a visitor to the city of Brotherly Love.
