Mack Prioleau Shares Four Underrated Attractions in New York Worth Checking Out
When you think of touring New York, what might immediately come to mind are the museums and art galleries, Central Park, the Manhattan skyline, shopping, and trying out the best restaurants in town. I’d like to keep the focus away from these for now and talk about other attractions that are worth your time. Mack Prioleau here; let’s explore NewYork’s underrated attractions starting with these four:
1. Tannen’s Magic Store, NY, NY. If you love Harry Potter or you simply marvel at the illusions performed by magicians, then you’ll like this place! The store has been providing magicians with tools and toys for their acts since 1925. The best part? The people at Tannen’s will gladly show you how the products work if you ask them to. Now you can go home and entertain friends and family with your own magic show!
2. Brooklyn Flea Market. The flea market is open every weekend year round, so you’ll never have to worry about missing it when you visit. Everything that you see here are artisanal products, from arts and crafts to jewelry, vintage apparel, furniture, antiques, and collectible items. True, it’s popular among locals and some tourists, but I feel that it deserves more acknowledgement and should be included in every travel brochure’s itinerary.
3. IFC Center, NY, NY. When in New York, make time for a movie or two at the IFC Center. It has 5 state-of-the art cinemas where you can watch local and foreign independent films, documentaries, sci-fi movies, Hollywood classics, and other cult favorites. Gourmet snacks and organic popcorn make your viewing experience even more enjoyable!
4. Ghostbusters Firehouse, NY, NY. With the recent remake of the cult classic “Ghostbusters,” the Ghostbusters Firehouse is a must if you loved the original films. This is a working firehouse and on occasion, they might let you see their collection of “relics” from the actual fires they’ve put out.
Are there other places you’d like to add? Please feel free to let me know! Again this is Mack Prioleau and I hope to see you all back here!
