Obstruction of Justice, or ‘Normal New York City Conversation’?
By John Leland

Chris Christie, a native son of Newark and the governor of New Jersey, suggested on Wednesday that President Trump’s remarks to his F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, including demands of loyalty, were “normal New York City conversation.” On Thursday, New Yorkers of various stripes begged to differ...

“It would be asking questions as a show of interest in the other person,” she said, “whereas in other parts of country, people don’t ask because it might put the person on the spot.”

New Yorkers stand closer, talk louder and leave shorter pauses between exchanges, she said. Often they talk along with the other person. “I call it cooperative overlap,” she said. “It’s a way of showing interest and enthusiasm, but it’s often mistaken for interrupting by people from elsewhere in the country.”

I despise being interrupted while I'm speaking, New Yorker or not. (and I'm a third generation NY'er)
