YOU KNOW YOU'RE A NEW YORKER WHEN....

1. YOU'RE 35 YEARS OLD AND DON'T HAVE A DRIVER'S LICENSE.

2. YOU RIDE IN A SUBWAY CAR WITH NO AIR CONDITIONING JUST
BECAUSE THERE ARE SEATS AVAILABLE.

3. YOU TAKE THE TRAIN HOME AND YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHERE ON THE
PLATFORM THE DOORS WILL OPEN THAT WILL LEAVE YOU RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE EXIT STAIRWAY.

4. YOU KNOW WHAT A "REGULAR" COFFEE IS.

5. IT'S NOT 'MANHATTAN'; IT'S THE "CITY."

6. THERE IS NO NORTH AND SOUTH. IT'S "UPTOWN" OR "DOWNTOWN." IF
YOU'RE REALLY FROM NEW YORK YOU HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CONCEPT OF WHERE NORTH AND SOUTH ARE.... (AND EAST OR WEST IS "CROSS-TOWN"!)

7. YOU CROSS THE STREET ANYWHERE BUT ON THE CORNERS AND YOU
YELL AT CARS FOR NOT RESPECTING YOUR RIGHT TO DO IT.

8. YOU MOVE 3,000 MILES AWAY, SPEND 10 YEARS LEARNING THE LOCAL
LANGUAGE AND PEOPLE STILL KNOW YOU'RE FROM BROOKLYN THE MINUTE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH.

10. YOU RETURN AFTER 10 YEARS AND THE FIRST FOODS YOU WANT ARE
A "REAL" PIZZA AND A "REAL" BAGEL.

11. A 500 SQUARE FOOT APARTMENT IS LARGE.

12. YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ALL THE DIFFERENT RAY'S
PIZZAS.

13. YOU ARE NOT UNDER THE MISTAKEN IMPRESSION THAT ANY HUMAN
BEING WOULD BE ABLE TO ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND A P.A. ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE SUBWAY.

14. YOU WOULDN'T BOTHER ORDERING PIZZA IN ANY OTHER CITY.

15. YOU GET READY TO ORDER DINNER EVERY NIGHT AND MUST CHOOSE
FROM THE MAJOR FOOD GROUPS WHICH ARE: CHINESE, ITALIAN, MEXICAN OR INDIAN.

16. YOU'RE NOT THE LEAST BIT INTERESTED IN GOING TO TIMES
SQUARE ON NEW YEAR'S EVE.

17. YOUR INTERNAL CLOCK IS PERMANENTLY SET TO KNOW WHEN
ALTERNATE SIDE OF THE STREET PARKING REGULATIONS ARE IN EFFECT.

18. YOU KNOW WHAT A BODEGA IS.

19. SOMEONE BUMPS INTO YOU, AND YOU CHECK FOR YOUR WALLET.

20. YOU DON'T EVEN NOTICE THE LADY WALKING DOWN THE ROAD HAVING A PERFECTLY NORMAL CONVERSATION WITH HERSELF.

21. YOU PAY "ONLY" $230 A MONTH TO PARK YOUR CAR.

22. YOU CRINGE AT HEARING PEOPLE PRONOUNCE HOUSTON ST. LIKE THE CITY IN TEXAS.

23. THE PRESIDENTIAL VISIT IS A MAJOR TRAFFIC JAM, NOT AN
HONOR.

24. YOU CAN NAP ON THE SUBWAY AND NEVER MISS YOUR STOP.

25. THE DELI GUY GIVES YOU A STRAW WITH ANY BEVERAGE YOU BUY,
EVEN IF IT'S A BEER.

I live in Florida now and when I tell people i am from N.Y, they automatically think i am from the city. Like there is nothing else up there but "the City" LOL But it does seem everything you said does pertain to " the city "
