Travel was up, way up, this Memorial Day Weekend. The forecasts didn't keep people off the roads or out of the skies, and if you were up by the Met you saw a snaking line that was the longest its been for ages. Traveler confidence is way up as well, trending back to pre-pandemic levels. The city expansion continues, too:

The public health milestones for NYC over the last few days are highly encouraging. Hospitalizations are way down and the average COVID positivity rate has been below 1% since last Thursday. Tourism is bouncing back. You can see it in the increasingly vibrant city around us.
