New Yorkers are probably the most delightful people in the world. At least if you don’t approach us before our morning coffee. We love tourists and visitors. We are really welcoming and open hearted. But if I were you, I would keep away from e little snobbish Upper East Side though and slightly dangerous Harlem. But otherwise we’re good.
Well may be, being extra cautious at Times Square won’t hurt too.
And by the way, pickpockets who work on Times Square are not New Yorker’s.
