This week’s issue of Time Out New York is all about what it really means to be a New Yorker, from the experiences you need to have to defining characteristics to the slang you’ve got to know. So we wanted to hear about the moment you first realized that you were, without a doubt, a real New Yorker. Over the last few days, you’ve told us your revelatory moments using the hashtag #ImANewYorker that ranged from the mundane to the epic. Check out 12 of them below.
