  •  The last word on New Yorkers (none)
    Full disclosure:  

    I've lived in New York, Los Angeles & the San Francisco Bay Area each for years.

    The best take on New Yorkers (and Angelenos, for that matter) was a John Callahan cartoon, which I cannot find online.

    It showed a dopey-looking tourist in "L.A." next to an Angeleno dressed in a floral-print shirt, shades,  & shorts.  The Angeleno had a voice-bubble which said, "Have a nice day!" and a thought-bubble which said, "Drop Dead."

    We also see the same dopey-looking tourist in "New York" next to a New Yorker dressed in a suit & tie, with a briefcase & hat, leaning forward at 45 degrees.  The New Yorker had a voice-bubble which said, "Drop Dead." and a thought-bubble which said, "Have a nice day!"

    "...And bunnies would dance in the streets, and we would find life on Mars." -Peter Singer, Brookings Institution
