Besides voting Democrat and taking the bus or train, what sort of stereotypical urbanite things do you do? Perhaps you listen to local music, did graffiti as a kid, or sit on the front steps while the kids play baseball in the street?

Smoke weed, drink beer, play dominoes on the sidewalk, and pump my stereo while driving my car.

I go to three or four different stores to do my week's grocery shopping instead of just going to a huge Target or Walmart grocery store. I have a butcher, a barber, a baker, a tailor, and a particular Chinese restaurant where I always order even though there are probably a dozen or more within delivery radius. Urbanists can be pretty loyal when we find places that work for us.

Avoid Walmart like it's the plague.
Measure things by blocks and not miles.
Don't have a driver's license.

They are just down right dangerous especially on the interstate. I see way to many mud-ducks performing them in the presence of a highly visible "No U-Turn" signs.jk Seriously they can be dangerous. I can see it being legal at a controlled intersection but on some highways,no.

This is stereotypically urban? If you're talking about "hipsters" then I can see what you're saying... but in general, I wouldn't say "white guilt" is characteristic of the average urban dweller.
