New York City Says It’s Open for Business Post-Hurricane Sandy

New York City, on the cusp of the popular Thanksgiving holiday parade, is officially stating it’s open for business and ready for tourists, after being hit by Hurricane Sandy three weeks ago. More than 95 percent of the city’s attractions, cultural organizations and other tourism related businesses have re-opened and are welcoming travelers. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will take place on Nov. 22, taking a new route down 6th Avenue. The Rockefeller Christmas Tree has been erected in Rockefeller Center, and the lighting will take place Nov. 28.

While some hotels in lower Manhattan, especially those in the Wall Street area were damaged and are under repair, most have reopened and all hotels above Wall Street are open for business.
