New York Tourism Tips

It is never worth trying to rush the doors on a departing subway train. Yeah, there's that mechanism that re-opens the door if there's something blocking it, but if you're in a party, there is a very large chance that you might get separated from the rest of your people if you try.

Yes, the buildings are impressive, but it is imperative that you ogle at them from the periphery of the sidewalk. You're in the way of all those people rushing by you, and they're actually working.

Don't ride the subway unless you know where you're going. It's not that hard to figure out, there are maps everywhere.

Don't eat at fucking McDonald's, what's wrong with you?

No, you're not supposed to drive in Manhattan. Those who do are masochists or in a bigger rush than you are.

There's nothing wrong with the food, it's supposed to be that spicy.

Manhattan is a big grid. It's really quite simple to figure out, with the exception of the lower Manhattan, which has street names. Avenues are north/south, streets are east/west. Everywhere else is exactly where any logical thinking person would think to look. The only thing that you have to remember is that the Avenues are between First Avenue and Fifth, they are Lexington, Park, Madison.

Okay, now while where you come from people might have a sense of humor about that racial stuff, here they don't, and will probably kick your deserving ass.

Tourists are not looked upon by natives with much affection. Don't piss off a native, they might kick your deserving ass.
