82194598 New Yorkers Take Staycations In Town Due to Economic Woes

NEW YORK – AUGUST 05: Mili Thomas, who works in event planning in New York, looks over the East River with her dog Luckey from the tourist-heavy South Street Seaport during her “staycation” August 5, 2008 in New York City. Thomas plans to use her staycation to visit the Empire State Building, walk the Brooklyn Bridge, go to museums, “and all those things I never do while I’m living here,” she says. According to American Automotive Association Vice President Mark Brown, the slowing economy and high fuel prices “have pushed some Americans to what we call the traveling tipping point. It’s clear that a small number of us may choose to stay home and relax with friends and family rather than take a vacation.”
