6th. Show your friend this.

I was born on 7th ave. and grew up less than a block from 6th, so I consider myself to have some cred, but your friend may not. So show him that Dan Barry piece.

If you say Greenwich at all when referring to Greenwich village, you are a tourist.

A true New Yorker would steal your cab and throw some scalding coffee in your face as he speeds off, Eurofag.

I heard someone correct a group of tourists earlier today on that pronunciation.
