2021 Updates

This guide is being updated throughout 2021. As you know, NYC, like everywhere, has changed dramatically this past year. On a slow year in NYC, there are hundreds of changes to restaurants and stores (attractions, less so).

Here’s how we are tracking things in this guide:

  • Removed almost every restaurant, hotel and anything else that has permanently closed.
  • We are not tracking temporary closures. Things are re-opening in July, August, Sept, etc. So anything that is Temporarily Closed is still listed. Please call or check your entire itinerary for the remainder of 2021 a few days in advance or as you go. Things are changing that rapidly.
  • We are not tracking temporary hours/days of attractions, reservations, social distancing and other health guidelines. Again these things are all changing on a daily basis. By the time you printed your guide, they would be outdated.

Some Insider Tips:

  • Broadway – will re-open in September and has a phased re-opening plan through the rest of 2021. This means a lot of Times Square/Broadway restaurants are temporarily closed and are waiting for shows to re-open. Additionally, hiring and finding staff has been difficult for a lot of local businesses.
  • Midtown & Financial District – the same holds true for Rockefeller Center & surrounding areas as well as the Financial District (9-11 Museum, One World Observatory). The businesses are dependent on local office workers and given that a huge portion of the NYC workforce is still remote, many of these establishments have either temporarily or permanently closed. The temporary closures are fully dependent on their customer base returning to NYC.
