Which is the second most polite city?

My current locale Zurich, it turns out, based on this field experiment.  New York City of all places came in first, but I agree.  There is so much human capital in the city one is always tempted to speak to strangers, given the reasonably high chance you will hear something magnificent in return.  Third and fourth were Toronto and Berlin.  In Europe Moscow and Bucharest were the least polite cities.  Bombay fared worst of all.
