Inspired by/straight poached from @Nicholas. Actively soliciting input from those who currently live in NYC, as I haven't had that honor in 6 years.
  1. Dan Smith

    He will teach you to play guitar.
  2. Dr. Zizmor
    B203be11 4ab0 4cf7 a57b 46d061207a94
    In my mind, these ads define the word "ubiquitous."
  3. THE Chicken & Rice Guys aka Halal Guys aka 53rd & 6th
    90f697db 95e9 4846 bad8 b4d1948af1b4
    All others are imitators. Shockingly kind and patient to very, very drunk clientele.
  4. Naked Cowboy

    Not proud to put him on the list given what a tourist trap (and certified crazy) he is but he is a very real NYC celeb.
  5. Showtime!

    Fuck these guys though, they're definitely going to kick me in the face one day.

    Also known as the rent is too damn high guy. He can frequently be seen around town standing next to his car "shown" blaring his theme music (look it up) and talking to people and signing autographs and taking photos. He runs for mayor of nyc in every election
