"You're Always An Innkeeper" - Hotelier John Fitzpatrick On 25 Years Of Success In New York

Fitzpatrick is now one of New York hospitality's most well know names and a haven for Irish visitors to the city. In the 25 years in between he has seen many ups and downs in the trade, from the post-9/11 downturn to monthly Celtic Tiger-era shopping trips by the wealthy Irish, and the advent of AirBnB.
He tells Ciarán Hancock about his quarter century in New York.
