MIAMI -- Miami may be known for its sunshine, but not necessarily for its sunny disposition, and the city of Los Angeles isn't exactly living up to its heavenly name.

Travel and Leisure's annual list of America's rudest cities awarded Miami with the top spot, based on experiences by its readers. This year, L.A. ranked fourth.

Miami took the place of New York City, which dropped from the number one rudest city in 2015 to number three.

Phoenix was now second.

The last time L.A. ranked first in America's rudest cities was in 2011.

The survey looks at quality of life, walkability, crime and safety and cordiality.
