New Yorkers have a reputation for being rude, but locals are really friendly as long as you don’t get in their way. The best way to experience the fabled rude New Yorker in action is to cause a delay.

If you need directions, move to the nearest street corner and wait for the light to turn red, and then ask someone for help while they’re waiting to cross the street.
