All in all, I'm still a NYC'er at heart. They may be un-sociable appearing, but they are the hardest working & caring MotherF$%#kers in the world.
Oh yea, no doubt. And solid proof of that was during 9/11 . . . a sea of seemingly indifferent people showed their faces and hearts. I'm obviously over exaggerating in previous posts. We're not hostile by nature, just kinda matter-of-fact, and that more or less only applies to the rush hour crowds on the street. But there's a whole lot of culture in NYC. You mostly see the usual urban stuff on TV and movies, but there are tons of thriving populations like Asians, Jews, Arabics, Eastern Europeans, Italians, Irish, to name just a few. You go to their communities here and you can literally feel the heritage. It's a great mix and people get along very well.
One thing I really enjoy from New York is the diversity. As easy as it would be to lose one's heritage, most people hold on to plenty of it. And yes, people are not rude necessarily, but they simply mind their own business.
It's funny because the first time I went to NY after I had moved to Arkansas, people were "warning" me about people in the NOrtheast. I know thyeir intentions were good, but they didn't know what they were talking about. My mom's frineds are all New Yorkers and they are all very very nice people.
I say howdy all the time, but I'd NEVER say yall, haha. Howdy came from having a gf who likes country music... it kinda stuck.
haha i do too. I used to work for the Stampede so during Stampede week they would get so mad if u didnt say "howdy" to people. Like during the year you could say "hi," and all, but during Stampede week the first thing outa your mouth pretty much had to be "howdy". And i tried to stop saying after wards buts its so damm hard.
