NYC lawmakers furious over 'ghetto tour' by Bronx bus company

All you Europeans and anyone else taking a trip to NYC this is the tour to take. I have never been to NYC but I would take this tour if I went, but I admit it would be for laughs. I don't see what the big deal is, calm down politicians!

Any of you New Yorkers know about this? Whats up with pickpocket park? And how about a section of the ghetto modeled after Paris?

"Tourists are crowding onto a Bronx bus tour that promises “a ride through a real New York City ‘GHETTO’ ” — and local politicians are furious.

Three times a week, Real Bronx Tours takes riders — mainly white Europeans and Australians — on a trip that includes stops at food-pantry lines and a “pickpocket” park.

Last week, on the first stop of the $45 tour, guide Lynn Battaglia, from Pittsburgh, pointed out a housing project. She then mocked the Grand Concourse, modeled after a Parisian boulevard.

“Do you feel like we’re on the Champs-Elysées?” she teased a couple from Paris.

As the bus idled across from historic St. Ann’s Episcopalian Church, Battaglia launched into a description of the crime, poverty and violence that plagued the South Bronx during the 1970s recession.

As she spoke, a line of two dozen poor people — including one man visibly agitated by the onlookers — waited for handouts from the church pantry."

not sure why this is news...who gives a fuck? If the Bronx wasnt a Ghetto, they wouldn't be doing these tours. Plus, the borough is getting tourists....

I took a tour in NY during mania weekend. It fucking sucked. I'm sure this Ghetto tour sucks too.

A chance for rich white people to point and marvel at impoverished minorities. Should do good business.
