When I was a kid and went with my family out-of-town and people found out that we were from New York, it seemed that most people thought that New Yorkers spent all of their free time hanging out at the top of the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty. They were surprised that I had never been there.

Now, I can say that I have been to the Empire State Building about 5 times and I finally got to the Statue of Liberty once in 2002-but at the time, the interior was still closed to the public. I still haven't been inside the Statue of Liberty.

I've also never been to BAM, Yankee Stadium, or the Staten Island Zoo.

I've never been to most landmarks:

The Brooklyn Bridge, The Statue of Liberty, Yankee Stadium #1 & #2, Shea Stadium/Citi Field, most museums, etc.

Up until recently I saw Times Square for the first time, I was in shock because we were just driving and then I looked out the window and it was just there all lit up, I just went into tourist mode.

Never been to:

Statue of Liberty
Top of the Rock
Top of the Empire State Building
Most of the museums
The old Coney Island w/Astroland
Yankee Stadium #2 (Technically it's #3)
Grey's Papaya
Any Broadway play

I walked the Brooklyn Bridge for the first time last year...also I work by Times Square and have to walk by that area every day to work...I can honestly say I hate tourists now

I didn't even know Staten Island had a zoo

I don't mean to belittle your list, but Grey's Papaya is not a landmark.
