The Latest for New York City Tourism
If you were out and about last weekend you saw a transformed city. Crowds are back. Reservations are required again. And, most importantly, the fear is ebbing. We think the city will come back faster than the pundits are predicting. A big slate of returning culture reinforces that idea:

Mayor de Blasio announced a three-month tax holiday for NYC hotel stays starting June 1st. All the more reason to expect a resurgent tourism sector in the weeks ahead. As of today, the majority of American adults are fully vaccinated.
Davler Media is excited to announce ETD (Everything To Do) Exclusives, a program to bring groups of consumers to restaurants, attractions, tours, museums, and other activity clients. We will introduce the 27,000 members of our Everything To Do Facebook Group to your business to participate in an event, if you promise to create something special. The first event, a summer kickoff with a celebrity chef, is coming up in a couple of weeks. If you want to host a consumer event that can bring 50-100 paying New Yorkers to your venue, contact us. —email@example.com
