Don’t. Yes, you, really, trust me. Don’t.
I know, there’s this burning itch to act edgy like a real New Yorker, and to jaywalk across 5th Avenue. First off, it’s probably just a heat rash anyway; but in any case you don’t cross against the light in front of one of those double-length MTA busses while it’s in the middle of making a wide turn and is hiding everything that’s coming along. And you know how they drive in New York, right? Especially the taxis? And you look the wrong way?
Just don’t. D o n apostrophe t.
