New Yorkers and Consideration

New Yorkers have a reputation for being brash and pushy.

Having recently come back from Barcelona, I noticed a striking difference in cultural consideration.

Barcelona and NYC both have fantastic subway systems.

In Barcelona, when you try to get off a train, the people trying to get on don’t wait.  They walk right at you.

In NYC, everyone waits for people to leave the train before they get on.

New Yorkers have a gracious subway etiquette oddly lacking in Spain.
