New York

The Empire State

Meet Willis

Willis wanted to visit New York, but when he heard about how mainstream it is, he immediately canceled his trip, burned his plane tickets, and had to watch all 4 seasons of Portlandia in one sitting just to gain his hipster credit back.

Willis is only one example of New York's new tourism problem. New York has become too mainstream for modern travelers. Everyone has seen pictures of the Statue of Liberty, so why go there for real? The Empire State Building was in a Jay-Z song. No one even tries to get on the Today Show any more. New York is in a crisis.
