Conde Naste Traveler has a slide-show which names the friendliest and unfriendliest cities in the United States. The results were taken from their annual Reader’s Choice Survey.

I always find it interesting to hear what people think about cities in regards to being nice, friendly, rude, cold etc… I think a person’s perception of a place  has  lot to do with how they act along with their own pre-conceived notions.

We’ve visited observation decks in places like Auckland, Bratislava, Chicago, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and many others.
