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.
