Going by the generalized video and hotel recommendations, NYC & Company seems to be going for mass market headlines-only tourists, for whom TV and movie version of Brooklyn is the epitome of artisanal.
Blame Hannah Horvath if you have to, but artisanal Brooklyn is hot right now with New Yorkers and visitors alike.
NYC & Company unveiled its second ‘tourism tour kit’ consisting at ITB Berlin this week to let international and domestic tour operators and agents know what’s up in NYC’s most talked about borough and educate them on how to promote the area to tourists.
This is the second neighborhood tourism tool kit created by NYC & Company. The first one on Long Island City, Queens was released last November at the World Travel Market and another one on lower Manhattan is in the works for later this year.
