Kindest Cities

By June 22, 2003

Follow me on:

Researchers tested the responses of citizens in 23 cities worldwide to determine the kindness of its population. On top were 1) Rio de Janiero, Brazil, 2) San Jose, Costa Rica, and 3) Lilongwe, Malawi. The least helpful were 1) Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 2) New York City, and 3) Singapore. See the study in the American Scientist.
