Overview

New York Times Bestseller

Living in New York City for five years as a transplant from Ohio, illustrator and T-shirt designer Nathan Pyle was fascinated by the unique habits and unspoken customs New Yorkers follow to make life bearable in a city with 8 million people (and seemingly twice the number of tourists). In NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette, Pyle reveals the secrets and unwritten rules for living in and visiting New York including the answers to such burning questions as, how do I hail a cab? What is a bodega? Which way is Uptown? Why are there so many doors in the sidewalk? How do I walk on an escalator? Do we need be touching right now? Where should I inhale or exhale while passing sidewalk garbage? How long should I honk my horn? If New York were a game show, how would I win? What happens when I stand in the bike lane? Who should get the empty subway seats?  How do I stay safe during a trash tornado? Each tip is a little story illustrated in simple black and white drawings.

Editorial Reviews

The Brian Lehrer Show
“The book is fantastic. . . . Hilariously illustrated.”
Associated Press Staff
“Useful observations about life in New York City . . . the tips work as well for tourists as they do for transplants.”
New York Times
“Every obsessive-compulsive New Yorker should circulate copies of Nathan W. Pyle’s “NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette”… For a newcomer, he gets it. His helpful hints are particularly sensible these days when people preoccupied with digital devices seem oblivious to everyone around them.”
Fodor's Travel Publications
“The hilarious cartoons in Nathan Pyle’s new book… are even funnier as animated GIFs. Pyle’s do’s and don’ts perfectly depict what makes New Yorkers tick.”
NewYorkNatives.com
“Full of useful advice… do’s and don’ts… and sage realisms… NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette by Nathan W. Pyle is equal parts funny and informative.”

Cute little common sense cartoons, but hard to see on a seven inch e-reader. I used a magnifying glass and still had trouble reading the print.
