"Say cheese: The @nytimes photographer Neal Boenzi photographed 2 tourists inspecting their cameras near the @unitednations headquarters in Manhattan in "the good old summer time" of 1954. That year, @nytimes reported, visitors had 5 favorite destinations in NYC: the #🗽, the @unitednations headquarters, @rockcenternyc, the @empirestatebldg and Times Square. More than 60 years later, the tourists keep coming: a record number visited New York City in 2015, and more are expected this year. And it's safe to say that the 5 New York City sites most popular in 1954 remain high on tourists' bucket lists today. To celebrate #MemorialDay and the return of summery weather this #nytweekender, we're sharing photos from the @nytimes archives." By nytimes on Instagram.
