15 Ways To Spot Someone From California In NYC

It’s easier than you might think to spot our brothers and sisters from the west coast in our city. Even after they’ve learned the way we speak and all of our customs. You may not hear it in their accents, or see it in the way they move, but there are tell tale signs:

1. They still don’t have the basics of winter-wear down, even if they’ve lived here for years… at least in comparison to their summer gear…

2. … and they have an unbelievable collection of outdoor gear (zip-off cargo pants, hiking boots…)

3. They marvel at the beautiful snow as if they’d never seen it before…

4. …or pout for four months until it warms up.

6. They use the words “chill” and “vibe”… but not ironically.
