Atlantic City is the second most unfriendly city in the world, according to a survey of nearly 200,000 Travel & Leisure readers from various countries.

Among the 266 cities surveyed, the shore city came in behind only Moscow.

One visitor was quoted as saying, "It’s fun—if you like to gamble and don’t mind rude, fast-paced people."

Travel & Leisure added, "Some readers wondered if the city, known these days for its less-than-lustrous casinos and boardwalk, was still reeling from the tragic blow struck by 2012’s Hurricane Sandy."

The list ranked Philadelphia as the seventh most unfriendly city on earth, behind New York at No. 6.

Travel & Leisure suggests that visitors avoid game-day quarrels, stating, "Even in the City of Brotherly Love, showing up on game day wearing a Giants hat is a bad idea."

In May, Travel & Leisure ranked Philadelphia the third least friendly city in America.
