While there’s no perfect scientific measurement for snobbiest city in America, DC seems to rank pretty high up there on lists that seek to identify by self-importance.
We’re not just standard East Coast snobs. Please... we’re so much more than that. We’re a unique breed of snob, driven by influence, power, and social status.
There are several shades of DC snobs that you’re likely to encounter -- from the recently minted “hip” (looking at you Shaw Snob) to the old-moneyed elite (that’s you Georgetown). There are at least 12 different types of snobs currently walking the streets of DC.
The Georgetown Snob
Ah, the Georgetown Snob. This is the DC original. Money, class, status -- Georgetown has it all. Maybe you’ve been to dinner parties hosted at their 19th century Georgian-style mansion. Or, maybe you crossed paths on the way to Brooks Brothers. Or maybe you’ve run into their budding snob offspring behaving terribly after a hoops win. Either way, the Georgetown Snob has walked these streets for a while. After all, as they’ll gladly remind you, their great great grandfather built this city.
