New York City — The summer resort

The gateway to all mountain, lake & coast resorts of the east

New York City invites you to consider her claims as the most attractive and healthful SUMMER RESORT in the east, and extends you a cordial invitation to come and enjoy her thousand and one attractions.

On the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by rivers and bays, the climatic conditions are most healthful. Perpetually fanned by cooling breezes; the city itself is cool and comfortable during the summer months, while in many other eastern points, the thermometer registers high.

Hotels, the best-conducted and most modern in the world, advantageously located in the centre of this great metropolis, offer the summer vacationist, for a short or lengthy visit, ideal accommodations at especially low rates during the summer months.

Unrivaled transportation facilities place one readily in touch with the most entertaining, novel and latest of summer pastimes. The charm of the seaside country or mountains is within your call; delightful trips by boat, motor, trolley or train enable you to enjoy a different and diversified outing every day of your visit; roof gardens high above the city’s flashing lights, outdoor theatres and restaurants, and a multitude of other summer pastimes provide an evening’s entertainment unequalled and obtainable nowhere but in New York City.

Opportunities to advantageously shop where modern fashion originates, to view the latest creation in art, to see the march of progress in every phase and exhibits exemplifying every industry, to participate in or witness any known outdoor sport, to indulge as fancy dictates in all that is best in summer pleasures, to enjoy a summer vacation in one of the greatest resort centres of the universe — where a visit for a day, week or month is replete with health, pleasure and happiness.

COME TO NEW YORK CITY FOR THIS YEAR’S VACATION and make your headquarters at hotels that set the standard for comfort, luxury and convenience.
