Who is a true New Yorker?

Recently I was accused by someone on this forum of not being a true New Yorker as I was not born or brought up in this city. True I wasn't born in New York city or even in the US for that matter but me and my family live and work in NYC and we have laid down roots in the city as we have bought and established our home in the city. I am sure there are millions of people in New York City like us who have come here from different cities and countries who have worked hard to make New York City their home. I am sure they would be as offended as I am if they were accused of not being true New Yorkers. That got me thinking who in your opinion is a true New Yorker? a Google search threw up a whole lot of surveys and blog posts some of them quite amusing as well..do have a look and post your comments.
