This March 6, 2013 photo shows the view from inside a room at the Z, a boutique hotel in Long Island City, in the Queens borough of New York. The Z is one of 20 hotels in the neighborhood that are luring tourists to the Queens side of the East River with moderate prices. Every room has a view of Manhattan’s skyline and the Ed Koch Queensborough Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge. Tourists will also find museums, waterfront parks and good restaurants in the area, along with easy access to Manhattan. (AP Photo/Beth J. Harpaz)
