See it like a native

I often get asked advice on how to see New York City. Of course I always suggest the purchase of a good, old fashioned print travel guide book, and the usual websites, too. Recently, I’ve been recommending NYCgo.com which is a reliable tourism and marketing organization for the city. Now they’ve launched a neat campaign to get New Yorkers to leave their own boroughs and see other neighborhoods like a tourist.

The “See Your City” campaign is using the usual media for promotion. But for my money, the best part of the campaign is a wonderful set of artwork that evokes the halcyon days of travel posters.

It seems to me that the campaign’s advice for New Yorkers work well for tourists in general.
