Go Here: South of the Border
Usually when I'm traveling, I avoid kitschy tourist stuff like the plague. Most often it's  has little to do with the actual culture of the place I'm visiting, and I get bored pretty easily. The infamous South of the Border (SOTB) is an exception, though. Seated on the line between North and South C…
Go Here: The Museum of the City of New York
Let me start by saying that I think the name of this museum sounds boring, too.
