The Latest for New York City Tourism

You probably never thought you'd be uplifted by reports of increased rat activity in the city, but such are the times we're living in. The uptick in rodent complaints reflects an increasingly bouncing back city. In more pleasant indicators, subway ridership just had its first 2 million-plus rider day in eons; nationally Uber saw rides spike almost 10% in March. There's much more on the opening front, too: The travel trends suggest summer in the U.S. will be dominated by domestic travel. New York should do well on that front: Destination Analytics has us #2 on the most-desired domestic destination list, between Las Vegas and Florida. And look for international visitors to be back soon—New York has now lifted its COVID-19 quarantine and testing requirements for all travelers.
