We have a lot of New Yorkers on this site, so I thought I'd share these tips I found. ;)


Saturday Night Live's Amy Poehler's 8 Simple Rules For Being A Civilized New Yorker

1. Be nice to everyone, especially people wearing hospital bracelets.

2. Don’t ask white girls if they “left their ass at home.”

3. If you have to bring your baby to a movie, make sure he laughs at appropriate times.

4. Don’t eat Cheetos and then sit down at a fancy hotel piano. :rolls:

5. If you are in Central Park and think you are getting mugged, first check to see if maybe you’re just part of a student film.

6. If you see Oprah at a fancy function, don’t grab her wrist and ask for money. Quietly sneak up behind her and whisper, “You give me that money, Oprah. You hear me?”

7. When walking on a New York street, try not to spit, litter, bleed, or take a crap.

8. If you need to do any of these things, try to do it between two parked cars. :lol:

some funny classics from overheard in NYC


Man on cell: Man, you're always high! Remember that construction job? No, of course you don't -- 'cause you were high!

--72nd & Broadway

Overheard by: Isaiah Tanenbaum



Conductor, as the 7 connection pulls from the station across the platform: All of you can thank the passenger in the fifth car down for holding the doors at 59th and making all of you miss your connection.

--N train at Queensboro



Conductor: Welcome to Times Square, crossroads of the world. Transfer here to everything. Bye.

--7 train station, Times Square

Overheard by: Margarita




Guy #1: I mean, who is impressed by knowing all the state capitals? That's easy. I can name every state capital.
Guy #2: Vermont.
Guy #1: Huh?
Guy #2: What's the capital of Vermont?
Guy #1: That's not a state.

--N train
