ALBANY – Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this season’s first I LOVE NEW YORK fall foliage report, which charts color foliage conditions across the State, is available and will be updated every Wednesday through the end of autumn.
Additionally, I LOVE NEW YORK is introducing a complementary “Foliage Photog of the Week” social media campaign that will select and promote one photograph each week through November that is tagged using #NYLovesFall to promote autumn tourism in New York.
The fall foliage season is one of the State’s most popular travel seasons and means big business for New York. In 2013 alone, it is estimated that travel spending in New York State from September through November had a $15.67 billion total economic impact, with $25.28 billion in direct spending.
