New York City struggling to get back visitors

Published on : Thursday, November 19, 2020

New York City is one of the most famous and popular tourist destinations in the world. However, the city is expected to struggle to get back visitor numbers after witnessing a drastic decline in visitors owing to the global pandemic.


2020 was poised to be another record year for tourism; however, the pandemic resulted in “an unmatched drop in visitation during the remaining nine months of 2020,” as per a report from NYC & Company – which is the official convention and visitors bureau for the city.


For 2020, the group is expecting a total of 22.9 million visitors, which is 66% below levels when compared to last year.


The international market is down more than 80% compared to last year.
However, researchers expect that visitation will start picking up once a vaccine is widely available – in late-Spring or early-Summer.


However, tourism is not expected to reach 2019 levels until 2024, owing to uncertainty and upset consumer confidence.


Meanwhile, corona virus cases are increasing in New York and many states throughout the U.S.


New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo re-established limited restrictions on bars, restaurants and gyms that went into effect on Friday for restraining the spread of the virus.
