Hidden-camera video: What’s NYC’s friendliest neighborhood?

How many locals would come to your rescue if you spilled your groceries all over the street? Time Out finds out.

Last week, we tested out how damn loud this town is. (Spoiler: It’s loud.) This time around, we see just how many of you fine New Yorkers actually pitch in when someone needs a hand. Actor Christy Hall and an undercover cameraman hit Manhattan and Brooklyn to count up which of you denizens earn Good Samaritan badges for lending their hands when her groceries tumble. Check the video above for our results. Fancy yourself a New York saint? Take our quiz to see how friendly you really are.
