Take note: to be a true New Yorker…
1. BLACK DRESS
It does not matter the time of year. The coats are black and the flip-flops are too.
2. NEVER LOOK UP
Yes, that gagnan face that you can admire the skyscrapers outside.
Try it on the subway, no matter how hard you look at them, they will not look back at you. Do they ever do it and then…
4. SMILING UNEXPECTEDLY. WHEN YOU DO NOT HAVE WHY TO SMILE.
When you enter a store, when you leave a store, when you grab the subway bar at the same time as he / she. The New Yorker is a polite level Zooey Deschanel. You will even give some conversation. Then already to engage in a deeper friendship… it only happens in the movies.
5. VETE ALWAYS IN THE METRO
Never in a taxi (only at dawn and because you know the high risk of falling asleep in the subway and appearing in Coney Island). “A true New Yorker knows that the subway is faster,” as Lily said in How I Met Your Mother.
A true New Yorker likes to walk: “It’s only 30 apples”. You do not have to take a bus, the New Yorker of pro never goes by bus unless he has an average age of 80 and is as heavy as Ted Mosby.
7. NOW YOU CAN ALSO GO ON BIKE
Congrats to frequent Citi Bike rider Leonardo DiCaprio on his #GoldenGlobes win!

8. NEVER CRY: “A RAT!”
Do not even look at the subway tracks to see it. Do not jump when you pass in front of you as you go through a park.
9. NEVER BE AFRAID TO THE COCKROACHES
Even if they are the size of a rat.
10. NEVER GO TO TIMES SQUARE, ROCKEFELLER PLAZA AND SURROUNDINGS
(not even when you turn on the tree and put the skating rink, no ). Also, do not go to the bull of Wall Street, to Wall Street in general (unless you work there, of course). Also, do not take the ferry to Staten Island if you do not live in Staten Island. And no, do not go up to the Empire State. There are many rooftops in the city with better cocktails.
You only share with visitors: Central Park (“The Park”) and the High Line. But you know when to go and where to go to avoid tourists. If necessary, you’ll even go by subway to Central Park to run there and you come back after running on the subway (and to make the purchase, nothing happens).
12. NEVER CARRY OUT OR LOOK AT A MAP
Not even a subway. Of course you will not open it in the middle of the street and if you look at it, do it out of the corner of your eye, in your mobile, as a tapadillo. A true New Yorker knows how to go from X to Y without help.
13. NEVER COJAS A FLYER DEPARTMENT IN THE STREET
Be polite and smile, but not so much.
14. MAKE A COLLECT ON ANY SITE AND FOR ANYTHING THAT THE NEW YORK TIMES , THE N EW YORK MAGAZINE OR THE NEW YORKER SAY MOLA
Queue up for the cronut. The real New Yorker does not make reservations, because they leave you, and because you do not mind waiting an hour and a half hour in front of the restaurant last it, the chef more cool, more weird food. Also, queue for hours (many hours) for the latest fashion show in the city.
15. NEVER DO YOU COMPLAIN THE COLD
Because the winter of 15 years ago it was cold.
16. NOR DO YOU COMPLAIN THE HEAT
Same reason as with the cold. And because you do not mind suffering sub-zero temperatures with the air conditioning. What’s more, you like it.
