"Friendly New Yorkers" Statue of Liberty Tip by WaterFront952

Statue of Liberty, New York City: 4 reviews and 4 photos

I have no idea where the poster below got her/his resources.. most likley from movies, because anyone who has spent atleast a few days in New York City, talking with the locals know that NY is a VERY friendly city. It is not any more or less friendly than ANY U.S. city. Obviosuly, if you talk to anybody during rush hour, walking or driving home from work, you might not get the response you wanted. Every city has it's bas apples. I have found NYers to be nothing but helpful. Most of the rude ones happened to be the tourists themselves (Just to let you know, the real NYers don't hang around Times Square, Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building etc. too often, so if you encounter someone rude at any toutist attraction, it is not a NYer). If you have a problem, then feel free to ask anybody on the street, and 9 out of 10 times, they will help you with a smile on their face. Infact, even if you look lost, or are looking at a map, many New Yorkers will approach you on the street and offer help (I have noticed this often). All the hype about New Yorkers being rude is something sterotypical that is seen on TV, and is not true. My advice... if your lost.. ask for help! New Yorkers want you in their city, and would go out of their way to help you... and no, Manhatteners do NOT carry guns.
