Will NYC's 'timeless appeal' encourage property buyers to send dollars to the USA?

New York has a "timeless appeal" that continues to attract UK holidaymakers.

The "timeless appeal" of New York could encourage overseas property buyers to send dollars to the USA.

According to Robert Wilson, UK director of marketing organisation NYC & Company, the Big Apple attracts both first time and return visitors.

He said the city's "diversity" and its "pace" are major draws, as well as its "sheer range" of tourist attractions.

"There are now 295 flights per week from the UK to New York City, so access is easy and it's a great place for a weekend or longer," he added.

For property investors, New York could be a great place for a holiday home or a rental property for other tourists. 

Mr Wilson pointed out that this year, another 33 hotels have been opened in New York, boasting more than 5,000 rooms.

"New York City has plenty to offer for families, as well as couples, older travellers and the gay market," he remarked. 

"More and more Brits are also exploring the city's boroughs beyond Manhattan, including Brooklyn, Staten Island, the Bronx and Queens."
