Nah.  Same dynamics in different arrangements everywhere, in every city.  One of the biggest assholes I've yet to meet moved here from Oakland a couple years ago.   Assholes come from far and wide.  No rhyme or reason.  Mid-life crisis or young-life ambition.  Let'm.  NYC has never been afraid of assholes.  Or anyone else, man.
