Go ahead and look like a tourist...tourists are people to.
Just panhandle and hassle people on the street, Practice being rude. You'll fit right in.
No, not at all.. I was just making a stereotype joke. New Yorkers are just in a hurry usually, that's why people mistake them for being rude. I've known some very nice new yorkers.. they are, after all people just like you and me. The bad parts could be attributed to any big city dweller.
dont wear an i love ny hat, t-shirt or badge
Hire a seeing-eye dog.
What does :/ mean? A half-smile? A stroke?
if you are doing touristy things, like statue of liberty, and top of the empire state building, ground zero, etc, you have no choice but to look like a tourist, because no one that lives in NY does those things.<br />
taking pictures u look like a tourist, no one that lives there needs to take pictures of thier family in front of the buildings<br />
giving money to panhandlers u look like a tourist, no one that lives in NYC gives. dont let that stop u from giving though. its part of the experience, lol<br />
nyc is very safe and fun place, people there are really nice and funny. I grew up on the streets there so i know pretty well. Enjoy, dont think about what you look like, no one will really care much anyway.
There are two things about your statement that strike me as wrong. Very safe and fun place? People there nice and funny? What's wrong with this picture? I've experienced neither of these things.
you get back what u put out eugene, if you **** through there with a negative attitude and a puss on your face, thats what ur gonna get back. I lived there for 25 years and never been robbed or felt threatened and had nothing but fun, but then again, i didnt do the touristy things. I spent time in central park, i rode my bike everywhere, i worked in a pizza place during the day and hung out down in the village at night, and performed in a lot the underground clubs down there as a drummer in a punk rock band. Our experiences there differ quite a bit, lets let allow for our differences and not try to analyze them. NYC is not for everyone.
Ummm. Sport a NYC accent. Wear tennis shoes with your office wear. Carry a backpack that has your work shoes in it. Walk like you are in a hurry. Pay no attention to anybody.
Don't go to that horrible place. New York is the pits. lol
stay in iowa-- we'll all be better!
You sound frightened.
I'm not frightened. I just don't want to ever be inside that zoo again.
wear jeans-American style jeans and maybe a button up casual shirt or t shirt with the Giants logo on it or some other NFL team.
