Despite a sluggish economy, New York City tourism has continued to thrive over the past few years.
And Mayor Michael Bloomberg credits that with the growing tourism efforts in the city’s outer boroughs.
During a recent press conference, Bloomberg lauded the efforts of tourism officials and said the city expects to be home to a record 90,000 hotel rooms by the end of 2011, many of them in boroughs other than Manhattan.
The Mayor praised officials for luring tourists to many different parts of the city, not just the tiny island of Manhattan.
The city is also eyeing another record; the Big Apple should easily surpass last year’s record of 48.8 million visitors by December 31. Tourism experts say as many as 50 million visitors could make a trip to New York in 2012.
