Reopening and news in New York City for 2021 Summer-Fall season. Useful info and tips to (re)plan your tour
This is the slogan under which – in addition to a millionaire funding announced by the Major Bill de Blasio in April during the press conference staged by the Tourist Board of the city, NycGO – New York City announces loudly the progressively re-openings of museums, theaters, libraries, fun activities and shops. Ready like the phoenix to rise (once again) from the ashes of a catastrophic year from a tourist and economic point of view, a direct consequence of the pandemic caused by Covid-19.
Progressive re-openings that already starting from July 1st 2021 will be almost total, except for Broadway’s Theaters which will work again 100% starting from September 14th.
Rooftops, restaurants, speakeasy, artist exhibitions, trend hotels, new parks and skyscrapers, and new experiences to live ever more like a local.
Starting from the Moynihan Train Hall, the amazing Penn Station Terminal – opened in January 2021, a real architectonic artwork – then keep on with the latest observatory that’s under construction – the Summit One Vanderbilt (it will be open in October). And the Louis Armstrong Center, which will rise next to the artist’s house-museum in Corona, in Queens.
Not to mention the invitation addressed to travelers not to stop only in Manhattan and in its most popular locations, but to explore the other four incredible boroughs of NYC– Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island – that have a lot to offer.
In case you are regular readers of this blog, you already know what I mean, instead whether you are reading it for first time it will be enough to click on the names of the single boroughs to discover an even more fascinating and unusual NYC. And an endless series of experiences to live and taste, of course.
The most famous and popular festivals of the city have been confirmed, too, for Summer / Fall season 2021 – in some cases with a date change.
It’s impossible not to mention the Shakespeare in the Park (from July 5th to August 29th), the Tribeca Film Festival (from June 9 to 20) and the Jazz Age Lawn Party in Governors Island (on July 12-13).
“Wish You Were in NYC”
No one more than the New Yorker residents is able to stimulate visitors (at the moment exclusively “local”) coming back to the city.
From here the vey original idea of creating some customized invitations: not only for friends, acquaintances and relatives – with also prizes and final lottery – but also for companies and enterprises, in order to use common spaces, small hotels and guest houses for meetings and business events.
In case you are onlookers and want to know more, or whether you have a relative or a friend in Nyc, find here the form the residents can use to send the invitation.
A collection of experiences, itineraries, guided tours, food and wine tours, artistic and literary tours to rediscover the “black” culture in the 5 New Yorker Boroughs.
With the invitation of going shopping in the local stores and workshops to support these activities in the reopening post pandemic.Find here further info about all the events and the trails scheduled.
Little Island, located in W 14th Street, in the area between the old Pier 54 and Pier 55, is one of the first new attractions to open in New York City after the lockdown caused by Covid-19.
A real floating park – officially opened on May 21st 2021 – lying on 280 pylons where 132 cement tulips open up on the top. The pylons mix with the pile driving of the old pier, which have been preserved in the best possible way in order to keep alive at least a small part of the original structure. On the top a wide terrace extends and it has three suggestive viewpoints of the city and the Hudson River. With a variety of spaces to live and explore.
Find here further info about the tour, the curious issues and the history (the connections with the liner Titanic included) of Little Island, to get an idea of what will be one of the most popular attractions for 2021 Summer/Fall season.
