STATEMENT ON IMPACT OF NYC TOURISM AS RESULT OF
US GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN
“Any closure of our National Parks would be disappointing to some travelers, but we do not foresee it creating a major impact on New York City tourism. Visitors will choose other things to see and do and there’s plenty to offer across the five boroughs including marquee attractions, Broadway theaters, world-class museums, delicious restaurants, shops and more. We remain on track to achieve another record year for tourism, with at least 53 million visitors expected by year’s end.”
- George Fertitta, CEO of NYC & Company.
