CITY SECRETS MANHATTAN: Always in the pursuit of the best, New Yorkers themselves are ideal guides to their magnificent city

  • Treat yourself to dim sum at the oldest tea house in Chinatown. Don't miss the best shrimp dumpling in the city!
  • Visit a townhouse where time stands still. The house was last inhabited in 1832, and not much has changed since then. When you leave, you'll touch the first car you see to make sure it's real
  • Take the time to visit the Fireman's Memorial in Riverside Park. Erected in 1913, the monument is for firemen a sacred and honored place, and for New Yorker a reminder of the price paid for their safety
  • Forgo Starbucks and treat yourself to a superior café con leché at an authentic Cuban diner
