Everyone hates the out-of-towner who doesn’t know how to act in NYC. Here are 5 tips that will help you blend in and avoid looking like an ignorant tourist.

1. Eat Smelly Food on the Subway ONLY

REAL New Yawkahs hate nothing more than smelling your food out on the street, so make sure you save your MOST aromatic meals (Indian takeout, vat of kimchee, etc.) for the subway, so the scent is contained! That’s basic NYC Living 101: Be considerate.

2. Walk as Slowly as Possible

During your time in the Big Apple, you’ll need to slow your roll through NY’s groovy grid-iron.¬†That’s because you may be stopped by a canvasser or a comedy show promoter, and it’s considered INCREDIBLY rude not to listen to their pitch in full. Also, always walk slowly on the left and pass people on the right, since oncoming cars can more easily avoid hitting the slow and elderly. It just makes sense if you think about it! Use your brains, guys.
