Have you ever wanted to see New York as locals see it? We have collected wonderful places of the city, which are not popular among tourists.
The list of the most interesting places where you can gain the local’s understanding and admiration of the “Big Apple” starts with Apotheke Bar. The Bar was opened at the times of prohibition. It is situated in Manhattan’s district China Town. Just few people know about the place, not to speak of tourists. Nevertheless, the bar called “Apotheke” offers a wide range of unusual delicious cocktails made of natural herbs. The locals admire the place, claiming it is one of the best bars in all New York.
A little bit of history: the side street where the bar is situated was called “bloody” because of the crimes were committed at that place in the days of the Mafia. In 1920-s the bar actually wasn’t the bar, it was a chemists shop, but…without any medicine.

Holographic Studios is held in low regard among tourists, but it is one of the most unusual and exciting places in New York. Holographic Studios is the museum of holograms, where you can learn everything about this type of art and even order your own holographic things.
The last unusual and unknown sightseeing in New York is…the Lenin Monument, which is situated on one of the roofs of the prestigious houses with an emblematic name “Red Square”.
The monument was bought in 1994 by the owners of the building because they were so deeply impressed by the idea of socialism. They even wanted to install the monument in one of the parks, but the officials prohibited of it. So, the businessmen set the monument up on the roof, where Lenin is pointing at the better tomorrow.
