A new article in Travel + Leisure lists Cincinnati as the 18th "Most Unfriendly City in the World."

“I arrived in Cincinnati on a weekend,” the magazine quotes an anonymous voter, “and I thought it was closed.”

But the publication is quick to note the Queen City is making progress: "Slowly, the city has worked to shed its prudish disposition. Institutions like the 21C Museum Hotel are working to revitalize downtrodden districts and give new life and personality to neglected buildings. "

The publication ranked the 30 least friendly cities in the world with 15 of them in the U.S.

While the Russian city of Moscow ranked first, Cincinnati cracked the top 20 and two American cities made the top five: Atlantic City at second and Los Angeles fifth.

They were closely followed by New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Las Vegas.
