London and New York are two very famous cities, but a British individual who decides to trek across the pond to the Big Apple will still need to brush up on some key lessons first. For example, the sense of etiquette shared by users of London’s underground tube system does not exist among the riders of New York’s grittier subway tunnels. True Brits will also find New York tea subpar to their own, and they should be prepared to walk quickly when using sidewalks. They should also learn and adopt the local lingo, but still know that the British accent will win them friends and admirers. These and other tips will help any British person navigate the gritty, crowded, overwhelming, and marvelously exciting streets of New York City.
- Public transportation is not clean and not a place to be concerned about etiquette
- Do not concern yourself with being polite people may shout you should as well
- Forget your proper British way of talking get into the lingo of your surroundings
“Accept that you will fall in love with New York and not want to leave. Ever.”
