With such a rich history and so many cultural sights, a major industry in New York City is tourism. It plays a vital role in the economy as the city boasts an annual influx of nearly 50 million visitors from domestic and international markets. Cultural events like parades and festivals also factor in as major attractions.
The amount of cultural and historical attractions in the city both on and off the beaten path is so staggering that residents are hard pressed to find them all. From the internationally known attractions like the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island to Headless Horseman Hayrides and Abandoned Subway Tunnels Tours, a New Yorker can spend years living in the city and still be surprised by stumbling upon something he never noticed before.
