  • New York City encourages visitors to head outside of Manhattan

    2013-03-14

    New York City has become such a staple of United States travel that it's easy to forget much of the attention is aimed squarely at mid-town Manhattan. But the Big Apple has much more to offer, and in an effort to highlight its other boroughs, Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently launched the Neighborhood x Neighborhood campaign to encourage visitors to travel to the other parts of the city, MSNBC reports.

    For instance, in March the tourism department is highlighting Brooklyn. The borough has welcomed a flock of new residents in recent years, and there's no reason that travelers can't follow suit. The borough's Fort Green neighborhood offers a rich tapestry of local culture as the home of Brooklyn Flea, which is held each weekend and offers everything from homemade wares to delicious cuisine.

    The recent move by Bloomberg and the city builds on previous findings that highlighted the growing number of travelers making their way outside of Manhattan. Late last year, certain online booking agencies began to offer guides to each neighborhood, and they also provided better hotel search mechanisms based on what neighborhood they are located in, Skift.com reports.
