NYC Tops 60 Million Visitors in 2016

"We are the safest, most culturally rich, most exciting city in the country. Every time visitors come, they can experience something new,” said Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen. "We are focused on making sure the benefits of tourism stretch into every borough and every community."

For the first time, New York City will have more than 60 million visitors this year, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Dec. 19. He said the total will be 60.3 million, and 2016 is the seventh consecutive year of travel and tourism growth in the city, with 15,000 jobs added over 2015 and hotel demand expanded by 1.2 million room nights sold.

"Not only has 2016 brought the largest number of visitors in New York City history, but it also caps off seven years of strong tourism growth and 15,000 more jobs for New Yorkers," he said. "More tourism means we have more people investing in New York City and are able to create more sustainable jobs for more people. New York is a culturally rich and diverse city with so much to offer those who visit. I look forward to continue promoting this beautiful city and welcoming all those who visit in the future.”"

"We are the safest, most culturally rich, most exciting city in the country. Every time visitors come, they can experience something new,” said Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen. "We are focused on making sure the benefits of tourism stretch into every borough and every community."

The city has topped its forecast earlier this year of 59.7 million; in 2015, a total of 58.5 million people visited NYC. Travel and tourism in the city now sustains more than 375,000 jobs.

Visitors from the United States this year represent a forecasted 47.6 million visitors and an estimated 12.65 million international visitors, both all-time highs, are expected by year's end. About 6.15 people attended meetings in the city during this year. For 2017, NYC & Company is forecasting the city will welcome approximately 61.8 million visitors, with 48.7 million domestic travelers and 13.1 million international visitors.
