New York is suddenly affordable. Summer in New York City is steaming up with last-minute vacation bargains and deals. First-timers and experienced Big Apple visitors make a beeline for New York CityPass, a pocket-size booklet of must-see, bold-face attraction tickets, priced 44% less than regular admissions. Hotel rates have been slashed up to 30% and airfares are at all-time lows. The city is pulling out all the stops to make Summer 2009 a budget bonanza.
New York CityPass goes straight to the heart of the city. Tickets to New York's most famous attractions are bound in a convenient one-purchase booklet that speeds visitors past most entrance lines: The Empire State Building, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Statue of Liberty from Liberty Island or as admired from a cinematic Circle Line cruise, Metropolitan Museum of Art, American Museum of Natural History, and the Guggenheim Museum. Combine these legendary landmarks with the thrum of summer uptown, midtown, and downtown. Throw in the lowest hotel and airline rates in years. Fresh deals are popping up every week.
Times Square is suddenly pedestrian friendly. It's the 400th anniversary of the arrival of Henry Hudson. On the Fourth of July, the Statue of Liberty reopens the climb to the crown . The city has beefed up its tourism promotion, The Real Deal, with discounts for visitors at hotels, shows, shops, and restaurants. A Sunday Stays program discounts Sunday night bookings by 20-30%. During July and August, a Signature Collections Third Night promotion at select luxury hotels offers a free third night.
Isn't it great to know that staycations are passé, especially if savvy travelers book online.
