As reported in The Daily News, “this week’s solar eclipse was just a warm up act for the big show seven years from now — and tourism officials are already getting ready.”
That’s right, a total solar eclipse will once again grace North America in 2024, and this time it will pass directly over New York state.
The totality zone of total darkness will cover a wide stretch of New York, from Buffalo through much of the Finger Lakes and Adirondacks. New York City will see 90% of the sun blocked out, compared with 72% of the recent solar eclipse, which brought most of Midtown to a standstill on Monday afternoon.
With just a two-hour drive from NYC to the totality zone on April 8th, 2024, tourism officials are already planning campaigns to intice visitors and logistics to support what may be a massive influx of visitors.
“We can definitely be one of the epicenters of the country,” said Patrick Kaler, President and CEO of Visit Buffalo Niagara, which promotes tourism in Western New York. “We are going to do our best to roll out the red carpet to welcome everybody who wants to come.”
Here at Workville NYC Coworking and Office Space, we’re excited to once again watch a solar eclipse from our private terrace on the 28th floor. Certainly, our members were excited to watch the eclipse on Monday.
What other NYC coworking space can offer such prime eclipse views! Workivlle’s midtown office space provides more than just workspace. Workville provides a space to call your own. And just 5-minutes from Penn Station, Times Square, and Bryant Park, our members are in the center of it all. Including the eclipse of 2024. See you then!
