New York Times Bestseller
Living in New York City for five years as a transplant from Ohio, illustrator and T-shirt designer Nathan Pyle was fascinated by the unique habits and unspoken customs New Yorkers follow to make life bearable in a city with 8 million people (and seemingly twice the number of tourists). In NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette, Pyle reveals the secrets and unwritten rules for living in and visiting New York including the answers to such burning questions as, how do I hail a cab? What is a bodega? Which way is Uptown? Why are there so many doors in the sidewalk? How do I walk on an escalator? Do we need be touching right now? Where should I inhale or exhale while passing sidewalk garbage? How long should I honk my horn? If New York were a game show, how would I win? What happens when I stand in the bike lane? Who should get the empty subway seats? How do I stay safe during a trash tornado? Each tip is a little story illustrated in simple black and white drawings.

The book keeps on crashing for some reasons...
I know I'm going to move to New York when I'm done with school. I knew that from the first time I stepped foot in the city. The book and the gifs (+50 points) are so helpful. You have to get this if you plan on living in New York or just moved. But remember. There is so much more that you'll probably learn on your own 😉
Fantastic and fun
Really a lovely little book. The cartoons are animated! Fun!
If only the author hadn't, in the end, thanked god for all the gifts in his life or the reference to his theology in the colophon. Not only out of place for a book of cartoons, but unexpected and unwelcome.
