The Real Miracle on 34th Street Would Be…


…if a single tourist was found at Macy’s without elastic waistbanded pants.


…if shoppers were actually embarrassed to wear PJs in public.


…if people didn’t treat escalators like fucking amusement park rides and actually walked their lazy asses up them.


What do you think would be the real “Miracle on 34th Street”?

    Miracle… when tourists realize they are in the middle of a WORKING city and consider others, i.e. maintain a healthy pace when walking, do not stop in the middle of the street, and act like normal, considerate human beings, not a bunch of gawking monkeys.

    Happy Holidays!

    Bingo. That would be a true miracle!

    Happy Holidays to you too Stephanie!

    That tourist who doesn’t walk on the escalator might be a fifth-generation New Yorker with a fear of heights. Particularly in the 59th & Lex Station. Not that I know anyone like that.

  4. NNYer Says:

    Oh, and when I was growing up here, walking up the escalator was considered rude indeed.

  5. the guy who just walked into you Says:

    I’m done with the “excuse me” when on an escalator (or even stairs), especially in the subway. I either say watch out or nothing and cut in between the two idiots.

    Listen tourists… #1 reason NYers walk fast is because we want to go HOME, we don’t have time for your shit.

  6. Aaron Goldfarb Says:

    I still say “Excuse me” but I don’t slow down for a fucking second.

    LOL @ Aaron’s last comment!
    people usually give you The Look if you try to run past them on an escalator.
    I’m not exactly sure WHY it’s rude- but everybody always acts like it is.
