DC's less rude, more PC/elitist/anal. Miami's definitely a rude/raw city (having grown up there and don't plan on moving back). NYC isn't rude if you live there; it's just unapologetic. Tourists tend to find it rude, and that's probably b/c they don't talk to strangers.

I wouldn't necessarily classify DC as rude but rather elitist. That's the nature of the work done in this city. Most people view themselves as do-gooders that don't get enough credit for what they do (potentially warranted).

On a different note I don't mind the dismissive "rudeness" when compared to the all up in your business "rudeness" I've experienced in other places, most notably the south.

Lived here all my life. I have been to much more rude cities. I agree and disagree. All in all I am proud to live in the Nation's Capital (or at least the outskirts).

I just read this morning that DC has been ranked the 3rd rudest city in America by Travel and Leisure... Ouch. The only ruder cities than us are New York City and Miami. Any native (or non-native) Washingtonians care to comment on this?
