Unknown Tourist Places in New York City

New York is a popular tourist destination, but having landmarks such as Statue of Liberty, Empire States Building has its own disadvantages as the lesser known gems of the city go unnoticed. Here are some of the unknown tourist places in New York City.

 

Flushing Meadows is the home to the world’s largest globe, which is the only remaining structure of the 1964 World’s fair. Built as a symbol of peace, the structure is over 140 ft tall and 120 ft wide and weighs a whopping 900,000 pounds. The Globe also named as Unisphere is one of the most enduring symbols of world peace.

 

Grand Central Station has a domed area outside the Oyster Bar where one can hear even the slightest of whispers .The architecture of the area makes it possible to hear the whispers clearly. This is something that most people visiting the station do not know. Perhaps, after reading this people might try whispering to each other more often.

 

Central Park is a good place to find some ancient Egyptian structures. One should see the obelisk that is believed to be built between 1500 and 1450 BC. The obelisk was gifted to the United States government after it assisted the Egypt in the construction of Suez Canal.

 

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a wonderful place to explore in peace. Away from the bustling crowd of the city, this place offers the tranquility and peace that is hard to find in place like New York. The Japanese Garden, Rose Garden, the Greenhouses and the Bonsai Gardens are must visit attractions here.

    I have never even heard of a few of these places, and I have lived in the city for 4 years now! I am definitely going to plan a NYC Tourism> day and go see these.
