The campaign to promote the rebirth of Lower Manhattan, one of New York City’s most iconic neighborhoods, begins June 1.
“Get More NYC: Lower Manhattan” has been designed to illustrate the recovery and revitalization of Lower Manhattan in the last decade.
The campaign will encourage visitors to stay in Lower Manhattan’s hotels, eat in its restaurants, shop in its stores and experience all the neighborhood has to offer. Lower Manhattan continues to grow with new residents, businesses, cultural attractions and open space, including the 9/11 Memorial, which will open to visitors on Sept. 12, 2011.
“Get More NYC: Lower Manhattan” will include new travel itineraries; consumer hotel offers promoting weekend stays with a complimentary Downtown Culture Pass; 20-percent-off offers at Lower Manhattan shops, restaurants, attractions and cultural institutions.
Cultural events and festivals will again enliven Lower Manhattan this summer. The latest Public Art Fund exhibit in City Hall Park, Sol LeWitt: Structures, 1965–2006, the first outdoor career survey of the artist’s sculptures and featuring 27 works, some as tall as 26 feet, has opened in City Hall Park.
Governors Island – just a free ferry ride away – will again feature a diverse array of art exhibits and cultural and recreational programs that are free to the public, including the exhibition Mark di Suvero at Governors Island: Presented by the Storm King Art Center, the largest outdoor presentation of di Suvero’s sculptures to be shown in New York City since 1975.
The 10th anniversary of the River to River Festival, Lower Manhattan’s largest free summer arts festival, will again feature music, film, dance, theater and art in a variety of public venues.
