just how do you stop SPRING BREAK?


@sunshine45 , exactly what I'm thinking.  First of all, spring break is time off from school, not an event.  And unless they totally close down all the resorts, beaches, etc., people will be going away for vacation over spring break.

Not sure if NYC can make a comeback or not. It is a hot mess alright. Everyone I know is staying away from there or leaving. I see no signs of improvement, crime is terrible.

The "mess" as you call it has everything to do with Covid, NYC was shut down and has been a virtual Ghost town, NY is still a very safe place

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

@RetRN , I do think it will make a comeback.  Eventually.  But you couldn't pay me to go there right now.  What a shame.

Re: New Years eve in Time Square to be Virtual

Midtown Manhattan is virtually empty and small businesses are still struggling or have permanently closed due to:

 

Broadway is closed

 

No tourism to speak of, the mainstay of luxury retailers

 

Office building occupancy estimated at 10-15% of pre-Covid levels

 

Likelihood that Work From Home will remain permanent for large numbers in the financial services sector

 

Rising homeless population with no end in sight

 

Rising crime and general lawlessness

 

80% of restaurants and small businesses unable to pay August rent in full

 

The highest apartment vacancy rates in decades

 

There's more, but these demonstrate a number of challenges.

Absolutely!  My husband is from there and we have no plans to visit anytime soon.  The virus is secondary to what's going on there now.  It's horrible, and very sad!

Re: New Years eve in Time Square to be Virtual

Dumping on NYC, which is still suffering and trying to recover from being walloped by Covid, is unbecoming and tacky in my opinion. If anyone thinks things are so terrible there, why would they seem so happy about that? Genuine concern is kind. It is important to retain our powers of discernment here.
