Want to know about hotel goss while on-the-go? Look no further than the NY Post Headlines Tour.You’ll get to go around on luxury bus whose outside is covered with The New York Post newspaper's attention grabbing headlines.
One of the tour highlights is passing the Plaza Hotel which appeared in “Home Alone 2,” and was the setting for Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones’ opulent wedding. Animated guides will also dish the dirt on Charlie Sheen’s infamous meltdown at the hotel--the one where the subsequent newspaper’s story read “TRASHED! Sheen in coke and hooker fueled rampage at The Plaza.”
The 2 1/2-hour tour is available every Thursday at 10 a.m and 2 p.m. It starts at Seventh Avenue and West 57th Street and traverses through Midtown, SoHo, Greenwich Village and lower Manhattan.

Isn't it always sunny at The Plaza? You'd think that after coming out of their $400 million dollar renovation they would be able to control the weather. Especially if guests are spending upwards of $800 a night, the stay better be perfect for enjoying the Plaza's prime location on Central Park South within walking distance to all the haute boutiques.
At their Fifth Avenue entrance, which consistently reeks of horse dung as the park's carriages idle across the street, the hotel has this shiny brass barometer to give a shorthand version of the day's forecast. It is hung a little high up to be of any real use, but at least it's spot on; this past week in New York has been fair alright, fairly miserably hot and muggy.
