"New Yorkers have a bad..." Taxis Tip by Leah9

Taxis, New York City: 9 reviews and 8 photos


New Yorkers have a bad reputation, but most of the people here are really nice. You should keep in mind that even though you're on vacation, other people still have to go to work, ie, try not to stand in the middle of the sidewalk! This is a very fast-paced city. If you're not going to move, step aside and get out of the way. Also, feel free to ask for directions or help, just be polite like you would be anywhere else. Don't wear your backpack on your stomach and walk around looking at everyone like they're going to rob you. Just use common sense. And please tip taxi drivers, waiters, etc. Relax and have fun. People are nice here, just really stressed out.
