We New Yorkers get a bad rep sometimes for being pushy and rude. This video sums up the real New York attitude that most of us share. We love tourists. They come to town, spend money, support our local cultural outlets and our local vendors and business owners. We hope they see why we love The City so much (and why it's not New York, it really is "The City"), tell their friends, and come back again some day.
But always remember, move fast or get out of the way. And stay in your hotel between the hours of 4:00 and 6:00 PM. That's all. We just want to get where we're going as fast as we possibly can. We're not really the type to enjoy the journey as much as the destination when it comes to our day-to-day lives. We are going somewhere for a reason, we either need to be there or want to be there, why not try to get there fast?
This video sums up the real NY attitude perfectly. Most New Yorkers are more than happy to be as helpful as possible, as long as you're not just getting in the way.
