Artist Nathan Pyle has created a series of animated GIFs to offer newcomers advice about daily life in New York City. ‘NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette’ is a helpful guide for navigating the city.

It is based on his personal experiences as he has lived there for over four years and wanted to start writing down some of the things he has learned so far. One of the GIFs, all of which were created using Adobe After Effects, advises people to quickly shut restaurant doors when the weather is cold outside or risk being hated by everyone inside.

Others say that going ‘upstream’ to steal a cab from someone is legal but a cheap move, buying a $20 umbrella is better than four $5 umbrellas, and watch out for A/C condensation in the summer. Pyle plans to put the tips into book or calendar form or perhaps start a web series.
