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: Oh, you're from the city?

Guy 1: No, I'm from Syracuse.

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

Someone who has guts, brains, good looks, and the right attitude. Someone who is able to live in the greatest city on the face of the planet, in the center of the world, and enjoy it.
There are two types of Americans: the fat, ingnorant, obnoxious type that the world makes fun of and that lives in hicksville, alabama type of places, and then there is the NEW-YORKER, the one that is actually smart, good-looking, and that controls the world.

A resident of New York City, especially Manhattan. Contrary to upstate belief, this term does not mean someone who lives simply in New York State. And if it is used in that context, it's only in the speech of some politician or something.
Someone from upstate is not a New Yorker in the traditional sense. New York State doesn't really exist, it might as well be Pennsylvania.

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

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.
From the News: "New Yorker got spit on and beaten by another subway passenger after apologizing for stepping on his foot"
