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 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.
