NYC: Curious Sights for Regulars

Below is a brief list of places to visit once you have become a regular. They are a good starting point and I can personally vouch for them.

There are thousands more curious sights that are rarely publicised to the masses but if you Google “curious sights New York” or “alternative New York sights” or similar you will find a treasure trove of options.

As a perfect compliment and for inspiration download the hundreds of Podcasts available from “The Bowery Boys” – a New York duo that explain the history of anything and everything related to the city in a fresh, entertaining style. I cannot get enough of their Podcasts and don’t know how I survived this long without them.

Combine this with the book I Never Knew That About New York by Christopher Winn and you are set to explore the city like no-one before you…
