New Yorkers are known for having an in-your-face type of attitude. They are direct, and have no time for sugar-coating statements. Yet, though sweeping statements are often made of this unique population, New Yorkers are also as diverse as the neighborhoods in which they live in. For instance, there are over 80 languages spoken in this city and about 36 percent of the population is foreign born. In fact, you can not walk down a street in New York City without hearing a foreign language or encountering an eclectic mix of individuals.
