Artisanal Brooklyn's now a destination in itself, so that's an obvious one to tap for hospitality industry. Then Long Island City in Queen, a stop or two into Manhattan, makes an easy hop for tourists.
While Brooklyn and Queens account for just a quarter of the city’s hotel inventory and about 13% of its 87,000 rooms, almost half the hotels in the city’s development pipeline are in the two outer boroughs…much of the demand stems from leisure travelers looking for lodging within a subway stop or two from Manhattan at about half the price.
