I had to chuckle when I read your question. This may be true still in some areas of the South. I know that in the 1970's I knew a New Yorker who left Birmingham, AL because I was the only Southern girl who would speak to him and we were just friends. I have not heard any comments like that from my clients from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania or other Northern states. These folks move here to escape adverse weather and high taxes. In addition there is a meetup group for New Yorkers. However none of my clients have attended any of their functions.
Hope this helps. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.
