As one of the world’s greatest tourism landmarks, New York City’s tourism market was devastated by the pandemic. We remained overly cautious throughout the months of the pandemic and it was definitely for the better as New York appears to be close to putting it in the rear view mirror. With the spread slowing and the implementation of vaccines, New York City’s tourism economy can finally be restarted and the Mayor of New York City, Bill De Blasio unveiled the plan for the city.
In the newly unveiled plan, the city is promising discounts and savings on attractions, hotels, museums, restaurants, shopping and much more for visitors. Some promoted destinations for tourism in the Bronx include:
- KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature premiered at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx earlier this month featuring new work by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, including two new outdoor monumental sculptures Dancing Pumpkin and I Want to Fly to the Universe, as well as Infinity Mirror Rooms and colorful flowers and floral sculptures that will change seasonally through October 31
- Visit Wave Hill in the Bronx for The Shadow of the Sun: Ross Bleckner and Zachari Logan, an exhibition to be held May 22 through August 15, featuring the works of New York-based painter Ross Bleckner and Canadian artist Zachari Logan who have collaborated for the past decade using different mediums.
