I think the reason why people in NYC are in a rush is because they have one of the longest commutes if not the longest commute in the nation. They already spend a lot of time just trying to get to one place from another. A lot of New Yorkers take public transportation so they sometimes have to get to crowded subway stations and then go to crowded subway trains then they have to walk maybe five blocks to their destination. New Yorkers have less time than others in the nation which is why I feel like they are in a rush. If you know your subway train might leave either five minutes or one minute from now you probably wouldn't be wasting your time too much with trivial things when you are on the streets.

Simple answer is that they have fallen victim to the notion that the abnormal is normal.

People have sh*t to do here, nothing more annoying than tourists taking their slow ass time to gaze and abruptly stop in the middle of the street. Take all that back to Nebraska

I walk about a mile to and from work. I enjoy it but I pick up the pace because I want to spend more time at home in the morning and less time walking--especially when the weather isn't ideal. I don't mind people moving at a slower pace as long as they aren't oblivious to those around them.

There are too many people in this city that it can handle. They should lower and limit the number of people being there. The infrastructures are collapsing. Why do they put so many offices and buildings in such a small place?
