New Yorker is an arrogant, primitive, money/pleasure-obsessed individual; irritable, angry and nasty type A personality who doesn't give a damn about others and only cares for his/her own well-fare. Some are just curse-spitting lowlifes, some are coldhearted bastards who think they belong to "high society" and are "on top of the world" (they're really only on top of their mamma). Many "New Yorkers" had 100s or dozens of sexual partners and long forgotten that love, intimacy, care, etc. STDs are rampant. New Yorkers think it's normal to go to a bar and find a one-night stand or to dump their partner on some petty issue and easily find a replacement (the dumped New Yorkers don't care too much though, because they are as committment-phobic as their lovers) Most New Yorkers fear or dislike nature and anything that is natural, for that matter, and try to hide behind fake values and things like "style and fashion" to conceal their spiritual and emotional emptiness. They prefer to see nature tamed and confined to something like Park Avenue poodle (who spends his days pampered at DOG DAYCARE). Many New Yorkers are extreme weirdos that outdo most L.A. nutcases by far and far. Some of the worst scum of world are New Yorkers: from lawyers to street thugs--though not all New Yorkers are scum, of course. And yes, I did live in NYC for quite a while, as well as in all large US cities.

a true new yorker is some one born and raised in new york city or the new york city metropolitan area (within new york state). they are proud and loyal and they understand the true past, present and future of their city.

they are not tourists or people who moved to new york simply because it is the place to be. true new yorkers have known the city and have had new york moments since they were young and so have a deep relationship with the city.
Tony is a real new yorker, he grew up by the old yankee stadium and his parents have a building out in the slope.

In general what it means to be a New Yorker:

One that has lived life (ie. live 10x in life, versus most other places in the world where you only 1x in life)

One that doesn't have time to waste, as he/she is experiencing human life on this planet to the fullest

One that understands and lives to the motto: you only live once (and/or for women, you are only hot once)

One that is not afraid to live/speak from your default self/soul state and core essence as a human being, versus from your ego state (as in generally superficial places like LA/OC, etc.)
Ie. New Yorkers speak from their soul, and do not need to put up fronts/characters/fake social conditioned politeness ego selves(in order to validate themselves) to live human life at the core essence/fullest
NYC Tourist: Where are we
Jessie the New Yorker: At the center of the universe
NYC Tourist: I don't understand
New Yorker: There is no other place where the concentration of people are the cream of the crop than where you are standing now

Someone who is from New York City or Long Island.

Yes, Upstate New York is part of the state and technically they are New Yorkers, but when someone says "I'm a New Yorker." people generally think NYC or LI.
Guy 1: I'm a New Yorker.

Guy 2: ...You're not a New Yorker.
