Local drugstores are no less surprising. In addition to medicines you can buy literally everything there, including household appliances. During a rest in one of the parks of the city visitors are literally attacked by flocks of squirrels. Little animals are absolutely not afraid of people and have even become the symbol of the city. Feeding tamed squirrels has become of the most popular entertainments for travellers. This exciting and interesting entertainment is enjoyed not only people but also by nice fluffy creatures. Bikes are very popular among the local people. However, this type of transport is more a way to deal with huge traffic jams, rather than the expression of care about environment. In New York you can see bicyclists on all roads of the city and in any weather.
However, local residents are distinguished by love to sport and care about their health. Simply every part of the city is equipped with special roads for runners. On mornings people of all ages go out to make a morning workout. Many people come with their families. The New Yorkers have quite a peculiar attitude towards alcohol. Drinking it on the streets is strictly prohibited. If you go to a supermarket, you'll notice that there only beer on the shelves. In order to buy other liquors, you will need to go to a specialty store. When buying liquor, a salesman will certainly ask you to show a proof of identity – any sale of alcohol to persons under 21 is prohibited.
