Top 5 Ways To Spot A New Yorker

1- They haven’t operated a washer/drier in years…and have no qualms with a complete stranger handling their undergarments.

2- They experience road rage daily…and don’t even own a car.

3- They couldn’t tell you the last time they had fast food…but know everything on the bodega menu downstairs.

4- They can name all five boroughs…but have no inclination to visit more than two.

5- They walk fast and talk faster…and fully expect you to keep up.

Top 5 Ways New York Tells You It Loves You

1- The subway arrives *just* as you reach the platform. And a stranger gives you their seat.

2- It’s Halloween night and you are actually able to hail a taxi home without any difficulty.

3- You live on the 7th floor of your building…and have an elevator. This my friends, is what you might call a “Christmas Miracle.”

4- Your deli man draws hearts, smileys, and I ❤ u on the wrapping of your morning bagel (true story).

5- It’s 4am/10am and delivery is still a very attainable option…with no questions and not a bit of judgment.
