NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette

Availability: In stock

A hip illustrated guide to the secrets and unwritten rules for living in and visiting New York City.

Living in New York City as a transplant from Ohio, Nathan Pyle was fascinated by the unwritten rules and tips that New Yorkers follow (or should follow!) to make life bearable in a city with 8 million people (and seemingly twice the number of tourists). Things like how to hail a cab, how not to get service at a coffee shop (chat on the phone while placing your order), the proper etiquette for holding a subway pole, how to walk on an escalator, classic street scams to watch out for, the best parking tricks, proper walking formation for a group of three or four, things only tourists say, how to hold your pizza and what it says about you, and countless other rules. Each tip is a hilarious little story illustrated in simple black and white.

Written and illustrated by Nathan W. Pyle. Published by William Morrow Paperbacks in 2014. Paperback, measures 6 x 6 x 0.4 inches, 144 pages. ISBN 9780062303110
