20 Signs You Are An Imported New Yorker

Not from around here?

Posted on

1. You cringe when you find yourself referring to New York as "The City" (especially when you are outside New York)


Your friends from New York constantly remind you that New York and New York City are not the preferred nomenclature.

3. Your parents are fond of calling The City the Big Apple


Every time you call home: "How's the Big Apple?"

Otherwise, you are only reminded of the nickname waiting to takeoff at LaGuardia.

8. You appreciate Shake Shack, but never enough to consider it better than your favorite lunch option from where you are from

11. You like to think of yourself as a character on one of your favorite New York-based television programs

16. You are always prepared for company at a moment's notice


Your friend: "Yo man, can I crash on your floor?"

You: "Well, I suppose you could, but I do have 3 inflatable beds and a sleep sofa if that would suit you better. #IKEA"

17. As a result, you do the standard loop of tourist activities at least 4 times annually


Statue of Liberty, Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMa, Times Square, tickets to The Late Show... I have you covered.

20. But you are staying in New York forever!
