Coinciding with the weeks of lower temperatures of the year, New York aims to fuel consumption and the arrival of tourists with twenty-one days of significant discounts in three of the areas with the greatest hook in the city: Broadway, places of interest and restaurants.
To face the "fear of leaving home", New York offers "offers to get you off the couch and enjoy to the fullest" of what the Big Apple has to offer, from climbing with discount to the Empire State viewpoint, to enjoy one of the most luxurious restaurants in Manhattan, explains the NYCGo tourism organization.
In a time where scarves, gloves, hats and sub-zero temperatures are the norm, which deters the coolest visitors, the Broadway Week, the Week of the Attractions and the Week of the Restaurants that although the three cover up to 10 February, generate the most economical season to visit the Big Apple.
Those who decide to venture to the cold New York streets can take shelter in Broadway theaters, enjoying an offer of two tickets at the price of one in twenty-four shows, some as famous as the winner of a Tony Award for best musical, "Dear Evan Hanson" .
Other works that attract the attention of the public, and whose tickets can be purchased from now, are "The Lion King" -the most successful musical in history, played continuously since 1997-, "The Phantom of the Opera", "King Kong "," Frozen "or one dedicated to the singer Cher.
Since the first edition of these discounts for the theater in 2011, made biannually, 1,225,000 tickets have been sold, generating 84 million dollars in revenue for the New York entertainment industry.
These weeks of discounts will allow you to enjoy more experiences besides the theatrical ones, with visits to museums, viewpoints and places of interest with offers of two for one at your entrances.
Among the 57 attractions that offer incentives for these cold winter days include viewpoints such as the Empire State Building – two tickets for $ 42 – or the One World Observatory – two for 34 – which ensure the best views from the Center or Lower Manhattan
If instead of the panoramas the visitor prefers to enjoy walking through the city, the Botanical Garden of the city, in the Bronx -whose adult entrance has a usual price of $ 15-, is an alternative.
Museums such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim – in the famed Frank Lloyd Wright building – or the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) also offer this offer on their tickets, which cost $ 25.
On the other hand, for families who decide to avoid the streets, some activities such as "DreamWorks Troll the Experience" or the tour through the corridors of the US network NBC also open their doors.
Walks or shows whet the appetite, so New York restaurants will offer fixed prices for lunches, brunches and dinners at 400 participating establishments: two dishes for lunch for 26 dollars or a three-course dinner for 42 want to attract neighbors to try 33 different culinary styles in 41 neighborhoods throughout the city.
For example, restaurants in lower Manhattan such as Gotham Bar & Grill or The Lodge terrace, whose menus range from 50 to 60 dollars per person, will enjoy these reduced rates.
These discounts are not only for lovers of good food, but wine lovers can visit the premises with the distinctive Wine Spectator, which will indicate the quality of the wines served during the past year.
The website nycgo.com/nycwinterouting also has offers in hotel establishments, to ensure cheaper accommodation, as well as a compilation of all activities that enjoy discounts in the cooler – and entertaining – New York weeks.
