Along with its numerous and evident charms that extend beyond the facial hair variety, New York is good with mustaches. The American Mustache Institute (yes!) has published the results of a two-year study on which cities people with mustaches would most feel comfortable residing. The methodology is extensive! First, the researchers created the AMI City Index to determine mustache-friendliness. They looked at employment (whether employers had "proven track records of hiring Mustached Americans" for example); transportation (motorcycles, monster trucks, and four-wheelers FTW); entertainment and sport (pluses for casinos, beaches, shooting ranges, skeet clubs, and pontoon boats); "culinary" (Miller Lite in restaurants, plus lots of Applebee's); and education (GEDs, community colleges, vocational schools).

Based on these criteria, AMI considered 100 U.S. municipalities through on-the-ground engagement, thousands of volumes of legal documents, relevant statistics, and U.S. Census data to identify the cities deemed most appreciative and supportive of the sexually dynamic Mustached American lifestyle, as defined by AMI.
