@Wonder_Tripper – “Coming from a country in Asia, there’s this common knowledge that New Yorkers are cold, they are mean, and they are brutal. My parents, friends and other family members have tried to persuade me to not move to New York, and as young as I was then, I felt like I had an obligation to really listen. They would always question how I can manage to make new friends in a new city, telling me that I won’t be able to survive, that it’s expensive and I won’t be able to afford anything, and that I’m going to get killed. Their comments got the best of me and it delayed me from coming to the city for quite a while. However, I did realize that if I did stay home just to make them happy, living in my comfortable life, it would have given them that satisfaction of them getting the best of me. Life wouldn’t have change on their end, but for me, I would have gone back to being restless like I always was. I didn’t want that. Arriving here in New York, all those words that I’ve listened to all my life completely vanished. Like any new transplant in the city, I needed help getting around the subway system. A random stranger helped me, even accompanying me to my destination. People actually held doors for me too! I also saw 3 random people helping an old lady get into a bus. This all happened in a short amount of time. There were nice people everywhere and it gave me complete satisfaction that my family and friends didn’t know what they were talking about. New Yorkers aren’t cold-hearted at all. They’re just really busy people. That’s my true honest opinion. They are friendly people with lots of respect for each other, in a strange way. I wanted to come to the city not to prove my family wrong, but just to simply see it for myself. Even though they had a huge impact of where I am today, the move really was for school and for me. I know how much a helping hand matters here in New York and I saw it all in that one day I needed it, but if my family and friends were supportive of me coming to New York from the start, I would never have seen how great New Yorkers really were.” Pic taken by @w57th in #MidtownWest
Living in New York can be quite complicated. The city has its way and rhythm that you need to follow. Began as a hobby in 2011 to document Tracy’s experiences in Manhattan, now this blog has evolved to lifestyle and travel blog bringing the best of living, food, and culture. The category “New Yorkers” on her blog shared information about what’s it like to live here, and also an article about what questions are ok to ask a New Yorker.
So just like Tracy’s said, “know how New Yorkers live, work, and play. Roam through NYC’s distinct neighborhoods and discover what’s unique about each. New York is, after all, a city of small towns.”
