Boston is overrun with snobs — that’s if you believe Travel + Leisure Magazine.
The Hub is ranked third as “America’s Snobbiest City
So how did we earn such a distinction?
T + L’s Katrina Brown Hunt writes “To determine which city has the biggest nose in the air, we factored in some traditional staples of snobbery: a reputation for aloof and smarty-pants residents, along with high-end shopping and highbrow cultural offerings like classical music and theater.”
The magazine singled out Boston for its wealth of higher education, old-school culture and high-concept bookstores.
According to T + L, there are two other cities that are far snobbier then Boston.
New York ranked #2.
And San Francisco took top honors as “America’s Snobbiest City.”
Is this distinction well-deserved? Or does Travel + Leisure have it all wrong?
