Have a Nice Tip
Slow walkers. Subway pole huggers. Motherf*!%ing sidewalk solicitors.
New York is not a city without its fair share of scourges.
But here’s how you navigate them, and with aplomb: waggish NYC artist Nathan W. Pyle’s NYC: Basic Tips and Etiquette, available now.
Pyle’s animated doodles provide hilariously droll tips on how to be a New Yorker worth his quick-strolling salt — e.g., riding the subway effectively (hint: it does not involve spicy pad Thai).
There’s even a tip on avoiding a lesser known eyeglasses scam that, full disclosure, your correspondent totally fell for in his early Big Apple days.
Pyle’s work is available both as a printed book guaranteed to start convos whenever someone sits down at your coffee table, or as an animated e-book for iPhone and iPad. (Ed. note: check out a collection of Pyle’s animations here; tres comical. Also beware: the iPhone version is hard to read.)
Oh and by the way, this book makes for a great gift, or for explaining New York to people when you don’t want to, like, explain it to them.
See you on the sidewalk, pal.
