MARY-KATE and Ashley Olsen recently got acquainted with their new home city of New York - by taking a two-hour sightseeing tour on a double-decker bus.

The 18-year-old actresses, who have moved from Los Angeles to the Big Apple to attend the prestigious New York University, took pal Mandy Moore with them on 25 August (04), as they sat among a group of tourists, taking in such sights as Times Square and Fulton Landing.

Moore says, "It was really fun. It was the quintessential cheesy New York experience."
