Learning How To Be A Tourist In New York City

New Yorkers are a breed unto themselves. We (yep, me too. I lived in Brooklyn until I was 10 and Staten Island until I was 35) have been described as:

The Ultimate Tourist Destination, Spaceflight, Is One More Step Closer To Reality

People get excited about traveling to certain places. Disney World. New York. Paris. London. Australia. Israel. Mt. Fuji. The mountains. Going camping. But the one place that might churn some peoples’ blood more than anything is a destination that we can’t go to yet – but it’s getting closer every day and is, to coin a phrase, “out of this world.”
