Looking for a warm welcome in a new city? Don't come to Albany - that's the message from a new survey of the most and least friendly places on the planet.

46,000 readers of Conde Nast magazine participated in the publication's annual Reader Choice Survey, from which the list of Friendliest and Unfriendliest Cities In The World was compiled. Florianopolis, Brazil, ranked as the friendliest city. Stateside, Charleston, South Carolina, took the highest spot on the friendly list, coming in at number 5. Only 2 other American cities were deemed "friendly" at all - when it comes to UN friendly, Albany, New York is #7 of the least friendly among U.S. cities - Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings was not available for comment...   and you don't have to go far to find the UN friendliest city of all - it's Newark New Jersey.
