10 things that make you a born and bred New Yorker

There’s something truly magical about being a New Yorker – after all, it’s one of the most famous cities on earth. In 2018, NYC welcomed 65.1 million visitors*, of which 13.6 million were international visitors.

But amongst all that tourism, what makes a true New Yorker? Here are 10 things that you’ll only relate to if you are a true New Yorker:

1. You can’t remember the last time you drove a car (and you’re now thinking, ‘where is my driver’s license?’)

2. You can navigate through the busy streets of NYC, whilst on the phone, wearing a face mask and hail a cab at the same time

3. You always get excited when there’s a film crew in your neighbourhood

4. You can spot tourists from a mile away

5. Your Tupperware is mostly made up of plastic delivery containers
