The “jekell” name has been around for years, but it is not yet common in New York City.
But that could change.
New York City has a citywide plan to build 1,000 more hotel rooms over the next three years, bringing the total number of such buildings to more than 5,000.
But the city is looking to do things a little differently.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Thursday the city would begin using the term “jerkley” for hotel rooms in New Orleanians living on the island of Jersey.
This is the city’s first time using the word in the official documents, which have yet to be released to the public.
The city is also creating a “Jerkley Hotel” to replace the old “Jekyll Hotel.”
The city hopes to attract new residents to the city by providing free hotel stays, free food and entertainment and a host of other perks, like parking spaces.
De Blasio’s office has said the “jacker” term is part of a larger effort to build up Jersey City’s reputation as a popular tourist destination.
He’s also been a vocal proponent of the city building a hotel at the site of the historic Old Post Office Building, where the U.S. Mint was established in 1854.
The building was demolished to make way for the subway in the 1960s.
“I think the term is a great one, and I would encourage New Yorkers to use it, because the jekell hotel is a perfect example of how to build an amazing place for a hotel to be,” De Blasio said in a statement.
“The hotel is designed with guests in mind.
It’s not just for the hotel, but also for the visitor, the visitor experience.”
He also said the city should focus on the “Jerker” name, not the “jersey.”
The term “jerkin” is a trademark of the hotel chain Marriott.
“There is no reason why we can’t make it clear that our hotel is located on Jersey City,” he said.
