literally, a resident of new york, esp. the new york city greater metropolitan area. in some places it can be used as a slightly offencieve term to describe bad drivers, second home owners, and tourists, due to the fact that in those places the majority of tourists and second home owners are from new york. the meaning of bad drivers come from the the fact of horrible traffic with much honking on mannhatten, and from the fact that tourists dont know the area's roads and rules, making them worsh drivers than locals.
there was a bunch of people and traffic in town today, but it was all new yorkers

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

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.
A kick-ass person who loves their state and is proud about it.Sometimes has a accent but not all the time.Cares about people who are offensive towards N.Y and will punch them 4 it.
