Every city works in an unexpected way, exhibits its own challenges, hides its own mysteries. Each merits its own particular guide, for the two guests and residents. Welcome to Gridlock Central, also called New York City amid the vacations. It recalls that you’re not in Kansas any longer or Manitoba, besides. Life will be so much better for yourself and everybody around you on the off chance that you watch a couple of essential rules.
In case you’re walking more slowly than the locals and there’s a legitimate reason behind the phrase “a New York minute”, remain to one side on stairs, elevators, and walkways, so we can step nimbly by you.
Two-by-two worked for Noah’s Ark, yet not Midtown. On the off chance that you should hold hands, plan to split away when we come barreling toward you, desperate to call that taxi. Walking four side by side as a family? Fuhgeddaboutit. Pair off and stay close.
Don’t stop short.

Watch that umbrella
Carry it vertically, not horizontally, similar to a Buckingham Palace sword. There’s little room on these roads for a mistake. Click on the next page to read more.
Keep up the pace
Walk around the park, wait in museums — yet in the event that you’re anyplace close Midtown, be energetic. Try to coordinate the beat of the natives around you. We’re anything but difficult to find: We’re normally wearing head-to-toe black.
Should your American Girl Doll shopping packs hit us in the butt, don’t imagine it never happened: Say you’re sorry. We’ll pardon you. We may even reveal to you how to find “that place where the ball comes down.”
