Urban tourism—I’ll take Manhattan (back from the tourists)

As international tourism reaches record numbers, urban tourism is now spreading from the historic centers of some of the world’s most well-known cities to neighborhoods not normally known as tourist destinations. Last year, New York City was visited by a record number of tourists, but rather than limiting their visits to Manhattan, they are increasingly venturing out to Brooklyn, Queens and other places not normally on the tourists’ trail. This writer somewhat bemoans the sheer number of tourists, and wonders if putting in place mechanisms to limit the number of visitors might be in order.
