  • New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a $30 million tourism marketing blitz to start in June, the city’s largest-ever campaign to recharge a moribund industry that at one time employed 400,000 workers and injected $70 billion into the local economy.

    “We are open for business,” de Blasio said Wednesday on a briefing. “There’s only one New York City.”

    The campaign will be called “NYC Reawakens” and aims to bring both domestic and international visitors to the city. The funds will come from federal stimulus programs and go toward television ads and social media campaigns, including a “Wish You Were Here at NYC” campaign, in which New Yorkers may invite friends to visit the city. The city will re-launch its annual “Summer Restaurant Week” from July 20 to August 15.

    City officials said New York isn’t going to require visitors to show proof of vaccination or take COVID tests to enter, but de Blasio said increasing vaccination rates will help boost travel.


    No wonder the civil servants don’t want a vaccine.

    Cash Is King!
