Americans think New Yorkers are rude but serve the best food and Louisiana has had a few too many, according to a recent survey.

Business Insider polled about 1,600 Americans about their views on the other states, asking them to identify the drunkest, dumbest and most overrated of the 50. While the results were displayed in a series of amusing maps that tell you a lot about the reputations and stereotypes of different parts of the United States.

Not surprisingly, New York was deemed both the rudest and most arrogant state. People said the residents of Georgia and Minnesota were the nicest, but many states in the South received a large number of the votes.
