    Grand Central Terminal (Station)? Apparently it's one of the world's most visitied tourist attractions (no doubt because it's a train terminal in the USA's most populous city). Could be fitting if we ever see railroads make a return to Civ.

    Surprised to see Bristol Motor Speedway on the list
    I would have gone with Daytona International Speedway or Indianapolis Motor Speedway which would be an era earlier.
    Disney World would be interesting- a bunch of amenities and tourism next to entertainment complex and seaside resort
    Dubai Marina- housing and gold boost acting like another harbor and built on coast
    Shaolin Monastery- free unit of monks without belief? Next to a holy site with temple

    I'm not sure if I should add Disney World. The name is probably trademarked by Disney and they wouldn't appreciate Firaxis using it in their game.

    You're probably right. What about Universal Studios? Or would a modern day theme park be too hard to implement?

    I think a modern day theme park would be hard to implement without running into legal issues.

    Louvre Abu Dhabi (opened November 11, 2017) is the largest art museum in the Arabian peninsula, and discussed by the Economist offshoot magazine, 1843. Looks like a marvel, perhaps if implemented in the game it would require coastal placement.

    So Eight new wonders coming in the first expansion. And we've perhaps seen most of them.

    If Santa Monica Pier, Washington Square Park, and that Antarctic research station are wonders, they aren't even on my wishlist. :p

    I sincerely hope Santa Monica Pier is not a wonder. *facepalm* Maybe the above mentioned ones are unique projects/improvements/etc. I don't mind the Antarctic Research Station being a wonder as such, given its scientific relevance.

    Also, as far as another wonder suggestion, Louvre Abu Dhabi. Coastal museum, could also be built in water since technically it's on its own island and has water inside it.

    I was a bit surprised to see the World Trade Center. On the other hand, it was a marvelous structure, and I think if it's handled tactfully, it'd make a nice wonder. Fortunately, wonders can't be pillaged or destroyed, so there's a little less controversy. I personally would've gone with One World Trade Center aka "Freedom Tower" (tallest building in the Western Hemisphere), but the old Twin Towers could work too.
    I'd also thought maybe London's old Crystal Palace would look great in the game.
    Since they're already adding the Statue of Liberty in Rise and Fall, may I recommend the Golden Gate Bridge? Admittedly, you'd have to build it in a little channel so it could connect two landmasses, but your units could move across it without any penalties.
    (Is the Taj Mahal still in the game? Let's throw it in for good measure. The Arc de Triomphe, too.)
    And just because I wanna shine the spotlight on a lesser known wonder, the Etemenanki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etemenanki

    Since there's going to be a boardwalk district, how about the Atlantic City Boardwalk?

    That specific boardwalk is listed as the most expensive property in the traditional American version of Monopoly, which uses the names of streets in Atlantic City, NJ.

    Throw in a suggestion for:

    Newport News Shipbuilding. Only facility in the world to be able to build, retrofit, repair, and refuel non-sloped deck nuclear aircraft carriers. Has an iconic massive blue super crane on the north side of the facility.
    Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. 23 mile long tunnel and bridge across the mouth of the Chesapeake.
    BMW Hochhaus: Cool building design to sort of look like a motor engine.

    Rideau Canal should be added; it's the world's longest skating rink and was Canada's answer to the Erie Canal.

    So Kilwa Kisiwani is the first Rise and Fall World Wonder to be officially revealed by Firaxis. It's not on the Wishlist, unless you count the Great Mosque of Kilwa.

    There's also Rideau Hall that could be added in as well.

    Bali, Maldives, and Hawaii would count as Natural Wonders, not Man-made ones. I have a separate thread for that.
    Galapagos Islands is already a Natural Wonder.
    I'm pretty sure I have most of the others you've suggested on the list. I'll check.
    EDIT: ok, I didn't had Edo Castle and the White House on the list, so I've added them. I'm not too sure about adding the entire Vatican City (St. Peter's Basilica is on the list) and St. Mark's Square (St. Mark's Basilica on the list) as wonders.

    I also removed Taj Mahal from the list, since that's getting added with Rise and Fall.
