  • Do new yorkers hate tourists?

    Best answer: Based on my family’s feeling that live in NYC they are annoyed by tourists because they stop all the time/walk slow ( New Yorkers are fast and always moving) and they add to places that’s already crowded, they know how important tourists are to their economy, irritated yes, hate I don’t think so.

  • When your New York drivers license list what city you live in does it list borough, like Manhattan or would it just say New York NY?

    Best answer: It depends on the borough.  It has to do with the fact that the New York City, in its present form, only dates back to 1899.

    The licence will list Brooklyn, Bronx, and Staten Island for addresses in those boroughs.  It will list New York, NY for addresses in Manhattan.  

    In Queens, it's a little more complicated.  When the Queens was incorporated into New York City, there was already number of towns in Queens County.  Among them were Long Island City, Flushing, Ridgewood, Douglaston.  You can still see the ghosts of those towns in the way Queens' street grid suddenly changes in some neighborhoods.  A licence with the Queens address will list the neighborhood, i.e.  Astoria, NY; Jamaica, NY;  Forest Hills, NY; Rego Park, NY;  Elmhurst, NY etc.

  • Is New York City EXACTLY how I describe it?

    -Half the city are rich Anglo Saxons (you know, pink skin, icy blue eyes, fair hair and English speaking). -The other half are Italians and Jews. -The young men are sexy and they grease their hair, wear leather jackets and sing acapalla. -The young women are all supermodels. -Everybody idolizes and sings like Billy Joel. -The Italians in the Bronx are thugs and hurt people. Basically, New York City is a combination of West Side Story, Seinfeld, Goodfellas and a Billy Joel concert (or band practice). Right?

    Best answer: You are going out with your partner. They are an entertaining group for all ages.

  • Why do non-New Yorkers get angry that we NYers are proud of our city? ?

    So, I had a family member who lives in Seattle writing on Facebook about how great her visit to the Seattle Museum of Art was. Sorry, but I have been there and while it is not bad, it is not the Met.  I have been to the Lyric Opera of Chicago; it's a good opera house but it is not Lincoln center. I have been to theater in LA. While respectable it is not like what we have on Broadway or off Broadway.  Other cities have decent cultural offerings, but they are not on the scale of what we have in NYC. I ate in nice restaurants in New Orleans, but it's delusional to think that they are on the same standard as what we have in NYC.  We are proud of our city because it offers the best of everything.

  • NYC selling out of masks for coronavirus, would you wear one in U.S or just stay in?

    Best answer: If it started spreading more, and I had to go out, I would. I already wipe grocery carts, use hand sanitizer after handling restaurant menus, and wash hands several times a day. It’s only common sense.
