According to preliminary data, New York City is on course to have 47.5 million tourists clogging our streets by the end of the year. (Kidding! We appreciate your business; just stay to the left.) That number is over half a million more than the record in 2008, and a 4% increase over last year. Last year tourism slipped for the first time since 2001, but this year puts the city closer than ever to Mayor Bloomberg's goal of getting 50 million tourists by 2012. Hey gay folks, have you made your Rainbow Pilgrimage yet?
