    NYC is known for its towering landmarks and soaring buildings. But it turns out some of the Big Apple’s biggest standouts are actually tiny.

    The city is so famous for its towering skyscrapers and colossal billboards that it’s easy to overlook the tiny things that make the city so grand. But if you poke around in its nooks and crannies, you might decide it’s actually the little things and places that tell the real New York story. Because, as any traveler knows, you don’t get to know a city by taking an elevator to the top of its tallest building or shopping in its largest department store. You get to the heart of a place by taking the time to notice spots that most tourists overlook. Here are 11 of the top tiniest standouts that will make you see the Big Apple in a whole new way.
