I never understood how New York has to rely on tourism.  I live in New Orleans.  We rely on tourism.  I know of smaller places that absolutely are 99% tourism.

You're literally the financial- heck, business- capital of the world.  Tourism is a nice extra.

I understand this campaign can fit with the "nice extra" part.  But then I hear that "New York is dying."  You're doing taxes wrong then.

Dammit DeBlasio. Too soon. Less than half the state has been vaccinated. We don't need a bunch of maskhole plague rats coming in from Arkansas to preach to us about Jesus in Times Square.

Let's aim to reopen for the new year, eh? Or maybe for the Thanksgiving Parade.

I don't think it's about "has to", I think it's about "can." Broadway, for instance, is a bigger industry in NYC than professional sports. And that's largely funded by tourist dollars. Which then contributes to lower-end incomes, (restaurants etc). NYC has one of the largest income disparities in the country. And some of the largest municipal services (daily rather than weekly garbage pickup, massive HIV/AIDS programming, etc.). And the influx of tourist dollars help to pay for that.

NYC is a really big deal with international tourists, like London, Paris and Tokyo. It was part of the economy organically and a humongous part of the economy that is usually taken for granted was suddenly gone.

I'm not sure if that is better than what I pitched to them.
