Walking as a Woman in NYC Street Harassment

This video that went viral over the internet yesterday has caught the attention of many people. What seems to be street harassment is also being seen by others as polite manners. I can’t speak for each and every single encounter in the video, but sometimes these gentlemen are just saying “good morning” or “have a nice day.” Are these comments really street harassment? Or just the opinions of a woman that is biased towards positive comments? Coming from New York, I have experienced some of this before, but not to this extent. If someone says “good morning” would that be considered street harassment? Do other women on a daily get the same reactions? Or is this video biased? Let me know in the comments below.
