I don't just think I'm right, I KNOW I AM.

This is common knowledge to people that travel for a living, are connected to the travel industry in general, or people that just keep up with this kind of thing, such as meeting planners.

The only reason I hate going to the Jersey Shore in the summer is because the traffic and crowding (tourism). What's to love about NYC being the #1 tourist destination? The bragging rights are going way too far.

Because *certain* posters have to pick apart the results just because NY is #1. I'm just trying to get back on topic so a certain someone doesn't close this thread too.

You are basically out of control. Again.

You compared NYC to Disney.....

That's like me saying which do you prefer? A porn magazine or a toy car.

I agree that nit-picking is weak, but tourism is another "trophy" NYC is going to take with arrogance, which is just plain annoying. (and no, no one's jealous)

It's just endless.
True. They can't win or lose gracefully. If they lose it's BS or stupid. If they win; they are the best and we all suck.

The proof is on you, Rachael. Ask any travel agent, it's a known fact.

Again, Vegas, Orlando and Atlanta all have more hotel rooms than NYC. Wonder why that is?
Answer

Vegas - Gambling
Orlando - Disneyworld and other parks
Atlanta - The convention capital of America

New York has held for the longest time the highest average room rate and the highest occupancy rate in the entire country. Before the recession the average nightly occupancy rate would top over 90% and room rate would be over $350 per night on average. Having worked in hotel management for over 10 years back in 90's and early 2000's I can state that this is insanely successful. If these others cities had rates this high they would be lucky to have 30% occupancy.
If New York had $79 a night room rate like the others how many more visitors would they have? The expense keeps many away. Also, land and construction cost in New York are very high. This keeps the supply down and the prices up. I hope this answers your question.
