Hope you are all well!
I'm after some advice. I've had my heart set on New York for most of this year and wanted to go nearer christmas to see all the setup etc (I'm a big kid haha)
I'm a 29yo male from Scotland who had planned to head to New York with a few friends over Christmas/New Year. Unfortunately everyone has decided to go to different places but I still want to come to see New York.
My question is, If I were to come over alone and head out at night for a few drinks or whatever, Would it be easy enough to get speaking to local residents? Maybe sit and chat, have a few drinks, Have a few laughs?
I don't know if I would fancy coming all the way over to have no fun at night especially over new year.
A friend has tried to persuade me not to go saying it will be lame going on my own as she heard its a rude city and won't meet anyone to speak to. I'm a believer that all cities have their rude and friendly people but just thought I would double check before I commit.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
