Overview

Living in New York City for four-and-a-half years as a transplant from Ohio, Illustrator and T-shirt designer Nathan Pyle was fascinated by the unwritten rules and tips that New Yorkers follow (or should follow!) to make life bearable in a city with 8 million people (and seemingly twice the number of tourists). In New York City Basic Tips and Etiquette, Pyle reveals the secrets and unwritten rules for living in and vising NYC. Things like how to hail a cab, how not to get service at a coffee shop (chat on the phone while placing your order), the proper etiquette for holding a subway pole, how to walk on an escalator, classic street scams to watch out for, the best parking tricks, proper walking formation for a group of three or four, things only tourists say, how to hold your pizza and what it says about you, and countless other rules. Each tip is a hilarious 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.
