NYC Tourist Attractions to Visit – from a New Yorker’s Perspective

       Every city has its tourist attractions – or traps, if you must – and New York is no exception.  However, some of them are worth the visit, even for locals.  A recent issue of New York magazine described some of these:

  • The best single way to see the Statue of Liberty is on Liberty Island itself, where in addition to Miss Liberty, you can get a great view of Manhattan and New York Harbor.
  • Three touristy restaurants worth the visit are the Grand Central Oyster Bar in Grand Central Terminal, Keens Steakhouse on 36th Street, and Katz’s Delicatessen (remember When Harry Met Sally?) on Houston Street.
  • Five touristy tours to enjoy are viewing 8 of the world’s Vermeer paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Frick Collection; the Peter Claesen Wyckoff House in Brooklyn, the city’s oldest structure, dating back to 1652; the Staten Island Zoo; the Steinway piano factory in Queens; and The City Reliquary in Brooklyn.

       Just some more things to enjoy in the world’s greatest city…
