Enjoy New York City on a Budget

       Many people don’t realize that it’s quite easy to enjoy New York City without spending a fortune.  Sure, dinner at a gourmet restaurant and a Broadway show can set you back a paycheck or two, but it’s also possible to enjoy the City while spending little or no money.  A recent article titled “5 FREE things to do IN NYC” in our local newspaper The Journal News listed five free sights or activities which are on many people’s must-see lists: 

  • Times Square, now even better with its pedestrian mall and what I’ll call the steps to nowhere
  • Central Park, where you can stroll paths to your heart’s content
  •  The Staten Island, still free and offering some of the best views of New York Harbor
  • A walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, which opened in 1883 as the world’s longest suspension bridge
  • The High Line on an old elevated freight line on the west side of Manhattan, and now extended up to 31st Street.

       To minimize the cost of a day in New York, grab lunch at a street vendor; it’s and experience you’ll not soon forget!
