FrancoFile: European tourists to the US can be really weird sometime.

A huge deal for the French in the 1990s was going to see a gospel church in Harlem. A couple of churches hooked up with travel agencies, put on brunches with musical performances, and had the French sitting up in a balcony watching the whole thing.

And the Germans are in love with the Wild West, thanks to a series of pulp novels put out in the 1800s by a German writer (Karl May) who had never actually been to the US.

it's not that weird.  those two things are probably a lot more uniquely american then many other traditional acts of tourism this country has to offer.

People stereotype the hell out of my 'hood.  Ok yes they are mostly pretty benign stereotypes about the East Village.  But I can just see the tour buses saying "This is where the hippies and alcoholics live".

And I can understand why she would be pissed... but its a free (expensive) city.  One thing about New York that you have to learn to deal with is that there is someone in the city doing something that will piss you off....all the fricking time.

They should do that 'Ghetto Tour' on Segways with expensive cameras, phones and wallets on display, maybe late at night.
That's my advice, fwiw.
