Room costs in NYC soar as 1 in 5 hotels converted into shelters for illegal aliens, homeless

Travelers interested in booking a hotel room in New York City this summer might be shocked at the price now that 20% of the city's hotel rooms have been converted into shelters for illegal aliens and the homeless, draining the city's supply of available rooms and sending costs through the roof.

According to a recent report from the New York Times, NYC has approximately 680 hotels. Of those, 135 have been turned into shelters.

The city currently has 2,812 fewer hotel rooms than it had just before the COVID-related government shutdowns of 2020. That drop in supply has coincided with a sharp increase in demand now that tourists are returning to NYC at about pre-COVID levels

These economic changes combined with a significant decline in short-term Airbnb rentals has caused rental costs to soar. In the year after NYC began accommodating large influxes of illegal aliens, the average cost of a hotel room in NYC rose 8.5%, from $277.92 in 2022 to $301.61 in 2023.

Many of these rooms are in hotels that were once frequented by middle-income tourists, and some believe that such tourists are likely to be hit the hardest by the changes.

"I really believe it’s enabled two-, two-and-a-half-star hotels to be a little more emboldened, to take advantage of the situation and charge prices that perhaps they wouldn’t otherwise be able to," said Sean Hennessey, a hotel industry adviser and clinical associate professor at New York University..............

If tourism declines, restaurants, shops, museums and the like will suffer. I know we'll never visit NYC as long as it's overrun by illegals.

I would encourage tourists to stay away from NYC.  Tourist $$ is important to NYC, and thus is a point of leverage/pressure that can be brought to bear on its government.

My sister is going to NYC tomorrow to visit her daughter in Brooklyn. My first thought was how she might stay safe from the illegals.  :0001:

Man in the Bronx reacts to 3 secret migrant shelters popping up in his neighborhood!

When I asked who will fix the crisis, without shame he said “Donald Trump… Bronx for Trump!”

NYC’s poorest zip codes forced to bear brunt of migrant crisis, confidential docs reveal
By Rich Calder and Georgia Worrell
Published July 7, 2024, 6:01 a.m. ET

Some of the Big Apple’s poorest zip codes are being forced to bear the greatest brunt of the city’s migrant crisis — including a Queens neighborhood saddled with more shelters than any other part of the five boroughs, internal data kept from the public but obtained by The Post reveal.

Long Island City is home to a staggering 23 government-run migrant shelters — 12% of the 193 operating in New York City, according to data tallied off a confidential list of shelter sites used by city agencies.

“The city dropped a bomb on us,” said Queensbridge Houses resident Danny Beauford, whose 11101 zip code includes a 24th shelter in neighboring Astoria. “The [migrants] are taking over. They’re taking over all the parking with their 8,000 scooters. They’re disrespectful — peeing in front of everybody. We do that one time, and we’re going to jail for a long time.” ...

As is always the case, particularly in so-called socialist jurisdictions.

How many homeless Americans have been put up in hotels and fed, clothed, supplied with free phones, healthcare and spending money?

How about American veterans? Why do illegals get special treatment?

Well I felt I included Veterans in 'Americans' , but I most definitely agree all our Veterans, indeed all in the military deserve much more than they receive...the substandard and often dangerous to they and their families health is just one thing that comes to mind.
