25 Urban Survival Tips That Will Increase Your Street Smarts

We all hear about wilderness survival. There are even several shows dedicated to it. They’re all about building shelters in the woods, finding food, surviving the night, and fighting off predators. But the fact of the matter is that most of us will never find ourselves in that sort of situation. In fact, it’s becoming less and less likely with every passing day. Urbanization is real folks. More and more people are moving to cities and out of rural areas. So, if you’re going to be learning survival techniques, chances are you’ll need to learn them for a different kind of jungle…the concrete jungle. Take these urban survival tips to heart, because you will need them.

Whether you’re moving to a new city or going on vacation, there are numerous things you can do to make your time in the big city easier and safer. For example, when you’re walking down the streets of New York City, don’t stop if someone offers you their CD. Just don’t. Keep walking. Actually, walk fast. As if you know where you’re going. Even if you don’t. And if you’re really lost, don’t whip out a map in the middle of the street. Duck into a store if you can. And for goodness sakes, when you read the “beware of pickpockets” sign, don’t check your pockets for your wallet. You don’t know who put that sign there, and they could be watching you! These are 25 urban survival tips that will increase your street smarts!

If you are ever offered a rap CD while walking down the street, just ignore and keep walking

If you are a tourist, never stand out in the middle of the sidewalk staring at a map, especially if you are a big city with questionable crime rates. Duck into a shop instead.

While going around a new town, make sure you wear clothes that don’t make you look like a walking wallet.

Always act like you have somewhere to go and go there quick, even if you don’t know where you’re going

If a charity offers you candy, remember your mom’s advice – don’t talk to strangers. It’s usually a scam.

If you’re ever in a new city, make sure you do at least these two things at every possible opportunity – use the bathroom and charge your phone

If you are riding on a train, don’t make eye contact with the crazy person. If nobody is looking at you, you’re the crazy person.

If every other store you pass is a liquor store or a check cashing store, leave that neighborhood quickly

If one of the cars on the subway is empty, there is a reason for that.

You know those kids selling M&Ms for their basketball team? Well, there is no basketball team. There’s only a few bad looking dudes with vans that drop those kids off around the city.
