COVID-19:  At the request of many of my Blog Readers and Podcast Listeners who rely on me for travel information related to New York City, I have complied a list of the most popular tourist attractions in New York City, and their status of OPEN or NOT OPEN.  The designation by the World Health Organization of the Coronavirus as a Pandemic has caused a significantly heightened level of concern related to travel.

This post will be updated daily, time and date listed at the bottom of the post.
