NYC tourism down, but still the most visited U.S. city

NEW YORK (WKOW) -- The Big Apple is losing tourists. Four percent less people visited America's biggest city in 2009.

But the numbers were still good enough to make New York City the most popular destination in the country.

City officials say 45.2 million tourists visited New York last year, down 3.9 percent from 2008.

Orlando, Florida was last year's most visited city.

Numbers are calculated thru airports and major rail hubs.
