25 Urban Survival Tips That Will Increase Your Street Smarts
Whether you’re moving to a new city or going on vacation, there are numerous things you can do to make your time in the big city easier and safer. For example, when you’re walking down the streets of New York City, don’t stop if someone offers you their CD. Just don’t. Keep walking. Actually, walk fast. As if you know where you’re going.
