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
