"New York, New York, big city of dreams," as Grandmaster Flash put it. Most visitors to the East Coast Metropolis come from the United Kingdom
. In 2015, 1.2 million people from Britain decided to have a look at the Big Apple. Second most frequent visitors are America’s next door neighbors to the North. The Chinese are closing in on the third placed Brazilians. A total of 58.5 million people visited New York City in 2015, 46.2 million visitors came from the United States and 12.3 million tourists
came from abroad.
"But everything in New York ain’t always what it seems," the streetwise Grandmaster went on to rhyme in 1983, when the record “New York, New York
" was released on Sugar Hill Records. A lot has changed since Flash and the Furious Five roamed the Streets of the Bronx in the post-disco era, pioneering a new sound and movement to be dubbed hip hop. Guess you gotta go and have a look for yourself what New York City has in store these days. (Better infrastructure and less wholetrains, probably.)
