NYC Basic Tips & Etiquette by Illustrator Nathan Pyle

Even the proudest New Yorker experiences frequent moments of intense frustration with NYC. These episodes are triggered by the high volume of etiquette failure and general inconvenience that arises when 8 million people populate a rather small area of land that attracts an increasingly insane number of tourists each year (52 million in 2012).

Nathan Pyle, an illustrator who moved to NYC from Ohio a few years ago, is compiling an amusing collection of common-sense advice that addresses the full range of hot-button NYC annoyances and challenges. As a prelude to his upcoming coffee table classic, “NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette,” Pyle is posting his witty black-and-white photos on Facebook. Many of the images are labeled as “pages that probably didn’t make the book,” and Pyle has also created a few animated GIFs that you’ll see on his blog.

Pyle’s illustrations are pretty hilarious and will surely have you chuckling. More importantly, they’ll also remind you that it’s not just you.

“NYC Basic Tips & Etiquette” will be released in April 2014 and is available for pre-order on Amazon.
