The pace is quicker in big metropoles and people more stressed by the tube , traffic and so on...

I used to work in a hotel in Paris when I was a student and most problems they were encountering were with taxi drivers overcharging them...

Most tourist do not experience the real Paris, London or New-York...

I don't get why people assume that people in NYC are rude. I've only had 2-3 people be outright obnoxious rude to me living here for the past 3 years. I've had worse experiences in Philadelphia/Boston/San Francisco on more numerous occasions just visiting there. I've lived in Boston and SF for extended periods of time, and those cities are a lot more pushy and rude.
NYC inhabitants have actually been some of the nicer people in general. France is like that too, I was shocked at how nice people in France were to my wife and I.

I've only had people be rude to me a handful of times, but I'm a VERY likable person.

I observe people being assholes to each other more often than say back in my hometown, but it's not an ALARMING amount.

I think the rudeness in my hometown is way worse than in new york. My hometown is full of a bunch of 2 cent millionaires who think they are god's gift to the world, but in the big mean city they are just another prick. There is a lot of competition in my hometown because of its somewhat small profile.

I have only spent a couple of weeks in NYC in my life but I found the people there to be friendly and pleasant.

For a period my girlfriend worked in times square and I used to stand outside and people watch while waiting for her to get out. I always made a point to be polite to tourists, and give people info if they asked and take pictures of them.

Then of course when it came to walking and getting somewhere I was cursing and throwing people out of the way.

I think some of the rudest people I have encountered in New York have been Italian tourists. They think they own the world.

Well, I mean this is America, the English can walk around like they own the place. Maybe even the Portuguese if you want to get technical. But seriously, fuck those Indians.

Good for hiking too.


I admit I wore cargo shorts rampantly through college. I've learned better since. Even then I never did cargo pants, the lines are just weird.

I have experienced amazing gestures of helpfulness and friendliness quite unexpectedly during some of my visits to NYC. Of course there are the "get-the-fuck-outta-my-way" people walking down the street, but being from the Midwest, NY is not nearly as "rude" as some would make it out to be.
