Free things to do in NYC

Tell me about some of the free things to do in NYC…

New York is said to be the most expensive city in the country, but you can make your stay much more affordable if you research in advance and find cheap or even free things to do while you’re there. From wandering around sightseeing to taking a ferry past the Statue of Liberty free of cost, you can save bundles of cash in the Big Apple, so here’s some of our favorite things to do for free:

Central Park – This is not just any park, but America’s first major landscaped public park and one of the country’s greatest attractions. From statues to exhibitions, galas to lakes, fountains to food outlets, Central Park has an endless amount of things to do and see for free or for cheap. It’s been free entry since the 1800s and is open between 6am and 1am every day.

Staten Island Ferry – This commuter ferry service crosses New York Harbor past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The 25-minute ride is free for everyone between Manhattan and Staten Island and back again.

Governors Island – Take the free ferry from Lower Manhattan to this beautiful 172-acre island and check out the mini golf, bike path, playground, picnic area and much more. Note that it’s currently closed until May, 2016.

New York Public Library – When I think of this gorgeous building, I’m still reminded of Ghostbusters, but the Stephen A Schwarzman Building is much more than a filming location and a place to find books. There’s events, fairs, displays and exhibitions all year-round, some amazing collections and free tours 6 days a week. The library is a fantastic example of Beaux-Arts style of architecture and a pleasure to visit.

If you want to know what’s happening in New York, TimeOut is a great resource for free things to do on certain days that you’re visiting the city.
