New York Gay Escorts and City Guide
The New York City Gay Community is the largest of any US city with an estimated 3.8 percent of the population although as we on ‘the other side’ know it’s easy assume that number is significantly higher with many men who sleep with men choosing not to identify as gay. There are close to 300,000 workers engaged in one form or another in the gay sex trade, Gay Escorts flock from around the world to capitalise on the New York City trade. Due to the city’s active policing policies for street solicitation, much of the contact for sex is through gay newspaper ads, gay bar encounters, and within the many New York City based website contact points. The sex trade is now largely online in New York city as in every developed city of world, gay escorts are now more likely to be listed solely on sites like GayEscorts.net.
The gay sex business has traditionally been centered near the Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen sections of the city. Traditional gay establishments and living accommodations in the Village have lessened as the rent in this district has risen.
Many in the city realize that there is a substantial tourist visitation to the city for its gay sex services. Back in 2010 there was a planned modernization scheduled for an area of the city that will fit into the existing lifestyle fabric of the City of New York.
The plan was unofficially dubbed “The Out NYC: a hospitality and entertainment destination geared to the gay community”. It was for a $20 million plan for 80,000 square feet of new buildings and upgrades to the community that is also “hetro friendly” to feature New York’s first full-service gay hotel that includes the first major new nightclub to serve the LGBT community in more than 5 years. The concept picture is shown below:
Although the facility was on hold for a number of years due to coordination of the state and city’s liquor licensing requirements, the sheer draw and anticipation of this huge tourist market at the time.
created a buzz of excitement which likely led to more sex tourism to the city of New York from the rest of the US and all over the world. The new hotel located at 508 West 42nd Street, between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues will add significantly to the area’s night skyline (see above the area between the bridges and foreground taller buildings). The project has a hotel with 123 guest rooms and a 10,000-square-foot dance club designed to facilitate 750 patrons. This compares to a total of about 4,300 square feet of dance floor in nearby gay bars. In addition to the construction, the urban investment plans to renovate an abandoned three-story building originally developed as a 1964 World’s Fair era Travel Inn. The new gay oriented hotel includes a gym, spa, restaurant, and 24/7 café. Developers, Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass, made it arguably the most ambitious commercial development ever to court New York’s gay community.
Located near mainland traffic access from the Lincoln Tunnel, the planned facility will include its own parking to establish a strong basis for tourist travel from the surrounding area as well as the local airports. The local community support includes the Empire State Pride Agenda, and Service Members Legal Defense Network, LGBT Community Center, Gay Men’s Health Crisis, Broadway Cares, and Equity Fights AIDS.
The street scene around the project includes many gay bars and night spots, but this project is expected to increase the general shine of the area and make the nightlife much friendlier and safer for residents and tourists alike.
An additional project in the area was planned by Beto Sutter, the former owner of the famous “xl” gay bar in Chelsea who lost his lease on West 16th Street, after more than five years in business. The plans call for the new “xl” to be part of a five-story complex owned by Parkview Developers.

They plan 15,000 square feet of additional on new fourth and fifth floors of ‘The Out NYC’123-room hotel, for a spa. They were negotiating with Nickel Spa, located in Chelsea at 14th Street and Eighth Avenue to take over and manage the facility. If they agreed since my last visit to NYC, this would be their second gay spa in the area.
New York has always been a gay meca and sex trade hot spot for the US with national and international tourism coming to enjoy the bustling sex scene, with the expansion of projects like the above we can expect to see New York city continue to be among the best cities in the world to find the perfect gay escorts and service orientated sex workers and male masseurs.
