    I had the opportunity to go before it opened but it just isn't for me. I have a view of MSG which is good enough for me. :)

    I am with you. Will go back to travelling as soon as the restrictions stop. My trips to Aruba and Paris were shot due to all this. Think that this year, will have several beach vacations for myself and my kids. Everyone will probably be able to use some fun in the sun. Look forward to getting back to Aruba.

    Work in midtown and have been heading in every day since it all hit the fan. The building is a 24/7 building so not an issue. Am one of the only people in firm that when I say I am out of the office, I literally mean it.

    Even though my building is open my office is closed so I can't even go in to pick anything up. I also had to cancel a few Vegas trips I planned (NFL draft, July 4, Labor day and now Christmas/New Years). The positive rate out there is north of 20% which is crazy. Maybe I'll go for the super bowl.

    Doubt many are travelling and looking at this thread rn but for the future if you collect jerseys the NHL store right near Times Square is a great place to go. Only about a 5 min walk away. Probably has 1 jersey for each team and a bunch of other stuff. One of my go to places every time I’m down in NYC.

    You literally cannot get in or is there a company mandate that no one goes in?

    Vegas just doesn't seem as fun with all the restrictions. Positivity rate aside trying to play poker or blackjack while wearing a mask doesn't appeal to me at this point. I like interacting at the table and enjoying cocktails.

    True, a hooker with a mask is defeating the purpose

    The spearmint rhino branded masks flying around the internet gave me a good laugh a few months ago.

    I use a card to access elevators than the office area. I'm pretty sure that's where I'd be blocked. We also have physical security there as well but they wouldn't let me in anyway.

    That is interesting. We have security as well, but as long as I have my id card, they are fine. Need the access card to enter the office, and all has been good. But then again, other people have been making more frequent appearances.

    The last place anyone should visit by choice right now is Vegas. Not sure what's worse, all the restrictions & the closed bars & restaurants....or the trashy bottom feeders who are showing up here for the cheap room rates. This place should be on everyone's no fly zone for at least a year.

    It's a company mandate that the office is closed but it is enforced. It was the same after Sandy. In fact when we worked downtown our office was closed for about a year due to Sandy but we rented space in one of Goldman's buildings for about 9 months. Access to the building towards the end was on a case by case basis, usually to pick up important documents. The same process is probably being followed but by now almost everything is digital.

    I don't know if it's the room rates or just a bunch of bored people riding scooters. Room rates this time of year have always been pretty low and in the summer there've always been deals to be had. I'm really not worried about that as much as the positivity rate.

    As an FYI, they've been closed since the pandemic started. Haven't reopened and are boarded up (which I'm pretty sure is due to just general boarding up of stores around election time but they never took it down). Doesn't seem like there's any intent to re-open it anytime soon. Maybe they're just keeping it closed until they move everything over to Hudson Yards if they're still doing that?

    Yeah that store is toast. The NHL totally vacated that building and moved everything to that large office tower on 9th and 33rd in Hudson Yards. The last time i passed by there the store was well under construction and should be open sometime after the winter/spring if nothing else comes up.

    Didn't know they had already moved out of the building. Do you have a source on the store opening or is it just something you heard?

    Manhattan West is 9th and 33rd. Hudson yards is on 10th. There's a mall in Hudson yards but don't know about Manhattan West.

    Two easy explanations.....rent and traffic. As you mentioned, a lot of midtown/downtown places don’t have anywhere near the customer base they usually have with people working from home. I remember seeing lines at Chopt 50-60 deep. Those people are working at home now. Second, the cashflow needed to pay rent in the outer boroughs is such a smaller fraction relative to Manhattan rent. A Queens restaurant/business doesn’t require tens of thousands of cashflow just to pay rent each month. Most Manhattan property is also owned by some REIT or corporate entity which is less likely to give a break on rent. Most commercial buildings in the outer boroughs are family/individually owned who are more likely to negotiate better terms.

    Yeah they're building a whole new strip mall type thing in Manhattan west as you would call it in that case. Peleton, and Whole Foods are already open and the NHL store is going to be right in there along with some other shops. Facebook is a big part of the development as they leased a TON of space in the post office, and 55 hudson yards. Amazon already has an office in the area as well. Should be pretty cool once its all finished.

    My office is in Hudson Yards. A whole foods opened up on 10th avenue on 31st across the street from me. I think it is part of Manhattan West. Hudson Yards stretches across several blocks between 10th and 11th while Manhattan West goes from 9th to 10th. I'm kind of glad the NHL store won't be in the Hudson Yards mall or else I'd stop in every day once things open up. :)

    Do we really need two more high rise office towers?
