Tourists or locals?

There used to be a time when people thought there was such a thing as a "typical (white) New Yorker--that is, someone who looked pale and Jewish or Italian. This just is not true anymore, especially in neighborhoods like Kips Bay...

This picture was taken in Midtown but the people were headed towards Kips Bay, where there are tons of young families who look just like this one. I don't know if the term "yuppie" means anything really anymore, but Manhattan has an awful lot of well to do young white families who are usually doing pretty well. They have to be to afford the rents.
