One year of Gay Marriage in NYC: $259 million Impact!

July 24th, 2012 | Categories: Uncategorized | Tags:

Officials estimate gay marriage has had an economic impact of $259 million on New York City in the past year.

The figure was issued on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn.

They say at least 8,200 same sex marriage licenses have been issued.

That accounts for more than 10 percent of the 75,000 marriage licenses issued in the city since July 24, 2011

One year ago, New York became the largest state to legalize gay marriage.

However, no state has enacted a law allowing gay marriage since New York.
