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.
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

Yes, Upstate New York is part of the state and technically they are New Yorkers, but when someone says “I’m a New Yorker.” people generally think NYC or LI.
