Gems of the Caribbean is elated to present to you one of its newest tourism and hospitality products, "Get Outta The House." This concept is designed to make it convenient to Caribbean and other nationals visiting Brooklyn, by ensuring that the Gems will care for your relatives and friends while you are at work.

We will be releasing more information on how you c...an participate in this concept. If you own a restaurant, ethnic boutique and other cultural and heritage sites, please send us an e-mail. In addition, if you are based in the Caribbean and looking forwarding to vacationing in Brooklyn, please send us an e-mail for further information.
Please do not remain in the house for 2017: "Get Outta The House" and immerse in the true culture and heritage of The Brooklyn Greenery.
What is Get Outta The House all about?
Every summer, 800,000 plus Caribbean-related visitors and their friends descend upon New York
Attracted by festivities held mainly in Brooklyn leading up to the Labor Day carnival
They contribute about $800 million to the economy of the city annually through their shopping for consumables and other goods to take home
Financial contribution to the city would be considerably higher if they were encouraged to “get out” and enjoy the myriad sights, sounds, restaurants, parks, museums, etc. of the wider city
Caribbean friends in Brooklyn are not heavy patronizers of the theatres, museums, parks, bars, restaurants and retail shopping and the other boroughs, the visitors are not likely to be introduced to these things by their hosts
Caribbean persons living in Brooklyn are unlikely to visit museums and parks in the Bronx, go shopping on Fordham road, or visit Staten Island.
