Pandemic puts NYC hotels on the brink

It does appear that several big hotels in the NYC have announced that they are closing for good, and some experts say that more closures are in the near future.

Many of New York City’s biggest hotels closed their doors in March when the coronavirus wiped out tourism and business travel. The shutdowns were supposed to be temporary, but six months later, with no potential influx of visitors in sight, a wave of permanent closures has begun.

Sinking under the weight of overdue mortgage payments and property taxes, some hotels have already shut down for good, and many others are struggling to survive.

Ottoman steak ?

Three years ago, a Turkish butcher named Nusret Gökçe became an internet phenomenon after he posted a video of himself stripping, slicing and then sensually salting a hunk of meat.

Salt Bae was born — and the internet couldn’t get enough … for a few months.

Today, Gökçe still boasts more than 26 million Instagram followers, who eat up clips of his over-the-top seasoning style. He’s also been able to use his viral fame to grow his branded empire of steakhouses and burger restaurants around the world.

Today, Gökçe operates over a dozen eateries, but his latest venture, a burger place in New York City called #SaltBae, is definitely not as popular as the man himself.

WS New York

While commoners can dine downstairs at The Tavern by WS, Wine Spectator’s exclusive club above it, WS New York, is reserved for members who are willing to pay a $15,000 initiation fee, and $7,500 in annual dues.
