Top 10 things to do in New York City for FREE!

Top 10 things to do in New York City for FREE! Enjoy!
I love New York. I know it’s a clishe, but it’s true. Unfortunately, my love affair with the Big Apple quickly turns sour when I remember what an expensive date she is. Here is a list of 10 things that you can do in NYC for free, some of which were the best moments I had on my holiday.

1. The High Line. The High Line is a public park located on the lower west side of Manhattan. While it’s true that the city is full of beautiful parks, none of them are quite like this. The High Line park is a recycled elevated New York Central Railroad – hence the name. It’s open from 7am – 7pm daily and offers lush greenery, interesting views of the city and the peculiar feeling of being in a park and yet at the same time, in the middle of a road. http://www.thehighline.org/about/park-information

2. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. This was by far the highlight of my trip. It was the middle of summer and boiling hot. With no shade to be seen, the task was a little daunting at first and the thought of sipping an ice tea in Starbucks seemed a much more appealing option. However, I’m so glad I actually walked across the bridge and back and I’m sure you would be too.

3. See a show at the UCB Theatre. The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre can be found on West 26th Street and if you like to laugh then there’s no excuse not to go. Every day of the week there are improv, sketch, and stand-up comedy shows performed by up and coming actors and comedians. Not all the shows are free but just check out the schedule on line
http://newyork.ucbtheatre.com/schedule/ and you can find out which performances have no charge.

4. Kayak on the Hudson. The Downtown Boathouse offers free walk-up kayaking every weekend, normally between 9am and 6pm (10am – 5pm on 72nd Street) and they provide everything you’ll need, including lessons. They even offer a 3-hour guided trip from Pier 96 if you already have a little kayaking experience.

5. Wine tasting at Big Nose Full Body. If you’re looking for an afternoon pick-me-up, or simply appreciate fine wines, but you want to save your cash for some holiday souvenirs then give Brooklyn’s Big Nose Full Body a visit. Every Saturday between 4 and 6 they offer free wine tastings and have more then 300 wines on offer. Not only that, but the staff are excellent, doing everything they can to accommodate you and make you feel welcome. Helpful staff, a huge selection and free alcohol – what more could you want?

6. Hang out with The Bard in Central Park. If you’ve never heard of Shakespeare in the Park before, then let me explain. It’s an annual outdoor festival held in Central Park. Every summer, tourists and New Yorkers alike flock to the park in the morning to join the queue of people attempting to secure a free ticket. Those who are successful can then enjoy a wonderful evening in the outdoors watching a performance of one Shakespeare play or another. Sometimes, even a famous actor or two will appear on stage just to add to the excitement. It really is a lovely experience, so it’s definitely worth the wait.

7. Have a ride on the Staten Island Ferry. This is both a fun activity and a cheeky way to cheat the system. Whether you want to have a look round Staten Island or not, it’s worth taking a ride on the ferry. It gives you a chance to see the breathtaking panorama of NYC, as well as giving you a sneaky look at the Statue of Liberty on your way past, without having to pay for a ferry ticket to Liberty Island. However, be warned: if you stand on the front deck you’ll be sporting a wind-swept hairdo when you disembark.

8. Free Friday nights at the Museum of Modern Art.
People in the free hours are always a lot: a rest on the benches young couples chat gay students and the tireless shuttle tourists. However, if you do not have time to look, you can always look once more on Friday evening. http://www.moma.org/

9. Bryant Park. From June to August, check out Bryant Park for a free outdoor movie screening. Movies are shown weekly on Mondays between 8 and 9 p.m. The movies are generally old classics, but the genres ranges weekly. Be sure to get there early, as the park fills up quickly with avid moviegoers.

10. The Grand Central Neighborhood Tour. Every Friday at 12:30 p.m. you can experience a wonderful tour of Grand Central and the surrounding neighborhood led by Justin Ferate or Peter Laskowich. In addition to exploring some of the highlights of Grand Central Terminal it also includes many neighborhood highlights, including Pershing Square and the Chrysler Building.
