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.
