NEW EXPERIENCES IN NEW YORK CITY
“There are endless reasons to love New York City in every season, but something special happens when the snow falls – from Lunar New Year celebrations in Flushing and the tree lighting in Rockefeller Center, to watching the Polar Bear Club brave the frigid waters on Coney Island. People from around the world feel the pull of New York City, and with Unlock NYC visitors can find the hidden gems – the New Yorker’s New York – and experience our city on a budget,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“This winter, we are giving visitors the keys to unlock a more accessible, affordable and intimate NYC. Whether it’s walking the Brooklyn Bridge as snow falls, skating on one of the outdoor ice rinks, or keeping warm in a world-class museum, we’re encouraging visitors to discover a different side of NYC,” said Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC & Company.
During the first three months of the year, the average daily room rate is approximately $235, which is about 22 percent lower than the average for the rest of the year, giving visitors and New Yorkers a chance to save on their hotel stay.
