New York City tourismThis year, the New York City tourism is expected to reach a record high, with close to 62 million selfie stick-touting visitors expected to visit the Big Apple this year. This figure is about 1 million more than last year.

The city’s moving on expanding its tourism office. Even Queens has a tourism council now, that’s pushing tourists to visit destinations like St. George on Staten Island.

There’s nothing that politicians love more than naming infrastructure projects after each other. At that, the new Tappan Zee Bridge, which is actually named after former Governor Malcolm Wilson, will be renamed after another politician, none other than Mario Cuomo, the former governor of New York and father to current governor Andrew.

Under the approved legislation, the new $3.9 billion span will lose both the Tappan Zee and Wilson monikers, becoming the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge.
