NYC is full of rude people LOLOLOLOL
New Yorkers may not talk to strangers the way people do in other cities, but they are quite chivalrous. I've had random strangers carry my suitcases up and down flights of stairs, and people have even held subway doors open for me, probably to the annoyance of some other passengers. Even police officers and security guards are courteous here. One of the Fordham guards is really sweet and friendly.
So yeah, NYC residents don't strike up conversations with people they don't know, but I really can't say I've ever seen much rudeness here in four and a half years of residence (not counting the time I lived here as a newborn.)
