REPEAT VISITORS WILL FALL IN LOVE AGAIN WITH NYC WHEN THEY EXPERIENCE ATTRACTIONS IN THE BOROUGHS BEYOND MANHATTAN 

NYC’s Ever-Evolving Landscape Ensures Travelers Will Have a Trip Full of New and Diverse Experiences Every Visit

New York City (March 2, 2016) — NYC & Company, New York City’s official destination marketing organization, encourages visitors to plan their next trip based on the iconic attractions that made them fall in love with the City the first time around.

“New York City is not a one-trick pony. It’s home to the best institutions and talent in every sector, and that is not confined to the borders of Manhattan,” said Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC & Company. “As a result, guests come back time and time again for brand new experiences, and the boroughs beyond Manhattan offer just as many premier tourist attractions including Arthur Avenue, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Queens Zoo and Staten Island’s St. George Theatre, just to name a few.” 

If You Loved Central Park…

You’ll love Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens. The largest park in Queens, it features expansive lawns to relax on and a 12-story-high, stainless steel representation of planet earth called the Unisphere. It also includes some of the best attractions in Queens: Queens Museum, New York Hall of Science, Queens Zoo, USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (home of the U.S. Open) and the New York Mets’ stadium, Citi Field.

If You Loved Walking Across the Historic Brooklyn Bridge…

You’ll enjoy taking a stroll across the newly re-opened High Bridge—New York City’s oldest standing bridge—that connects the neighborhoods of Washington Heights in Manhattan and Highbridge in the Bronx.

If You’ve Seen the Mets Play in Queens or the Yankees in the Bronx…

Then come catch the stars of tomorrow playing at a Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball game in Coney Island or a Staten Island Yankees minor league game in Richmond.

If You Loved Seeing Broadway Shows or a Legendary Performance by the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall…

Then you’ll enjoy all kinds of performing arts at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), concerts at the newly re-opened Kings Theatre in Brooklyn or one of Staten Island’s most beloved cultural organizations, the St. George Theatre. Repeat visitors can also go beyond Broadway and see one of the many, more intimate Off-Broadway shows the City has to offer.

If You Loved Looking at more than 130 Species of Animals at the Central Park Zoo…

Then you should be sure to check out the internationally renowned Bronx Zoo, home to more than 4,000 animals; the Staten Island Zoo, known for its extensive collection of rattlesnakes; or more than 266 species of aquatic wildlife in Coney Island at the New York Aquarium, the oldest continually operating aquarium in the United States.  

If You Visited the 9/11 Memorial in Downtown Manhattan…

You may also be interested in hopping off the Staten Island Ferry in St. George and taking a short walk to Postcards, a permanent tribute to Staten Island victims of 9/11 and the 1993 World Trade Center attacks.

If You Loved Coney Island in Brooklyn…

Brighton Beach is a mere 15-minute walk up the boardwalk. Also called Little Odessa, the Brooklyn neighborhood is known for its tight-knit, Russian-speaking community and the colorful shops, food emporiums, and restaurants that line Brighton Beach Avenue, as well as its quiet beach.

If You’ve Enjoyed a Drink or Two at one of the Manhattan Biergartens…

Then you should visit one of NYC’s oldest beer gardens, Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden in Astoria or breweries including Finback and Big Alice Brewing in Queens, Other Half Brewing Company and Threes Brewing in Brooklyn, or Flagship Brewing Company in Staten Island.

If You and Your Children Loved the Hands-on, Educational Exhibits at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan…

You’ll love experiencing the New York Hall of Science in Queens. Guests can discover more than 450 interactive exhibits including Rocket Park Mini Golf, the award-winning 60,000 square-foot Science Playground and Design Lab—an innovative hands-on space that helps young visitors gain a greater understanding of the design and engineering process.

If You’ve Feasted on Some of the Finest Italian Food in Little Italy…

You’ll love a new experience with the same old-world charm on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, an area full of family-owned shops, local pride, classic Italian charm and fresh, authentic fare.
