T here isn't much undeveloped land in Manhattan, but in the bits that are you'll usually find a vanguard of artists and gay adventurers drawn by cheap rents and the edgy vibe of long ignored neighbourhoods. The far west of 42nd Street is a case in point. From Times Square, as I head west along this city artery, in just four blocks I'm in a no man's land of empty lots, car workshops and subsidised housing. It is pretty bleak, but as I look more closely the odd art studio and antique reclamation store catch my eye. Then something altogether out of place comes into view: a postmodernist three-storey extravaganza of glass and horizontal lines. This is Out NYC hotel.

A Couples Romantic Bed & Breakfast in Saugatuck Michigan
Grand Rapids — There are lots of untapped tourist dollars to be had if Michigan markets itself as an appealing and inclusive destination for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. If so, please market to the LGBT family, because they are waiting for someone to invite them. Of the 45, LGBT people his firm surveyed last year, Roth said, 69 percent said they are more likely to visit a destination because its tourism office or visitors bureau reaches out to them. Of those, 39 percent said they spend more at LGBT-friendly destinations. Roth, whose organization works specifically with those in the LGBT community, says the reality of the market has changed over the years, but the desire to travel and the income to do it have mostly remained consistent.
