I saw this on Gothamist. There are actually some very useful tips for people who are visiting New York. Like how to ask for directions (ask for a cross street), which cabs aren’t taken and how Fifth Avenue divides Manhattan into the East and West side.

But of course mine is all about how tourists affect me, and the number one way just has to be getting in the way when I’m walking down the sidewalk. I work in midtown and also frequently go to Chinatown which are two places heavily populated by tourists. Chinatown has tiny tiny sidewalks and midtown has just a crap ton of tourists so both ways they’re getting in my way. Though in Chinatown and Times Square most of the time I just walk in the street.
