Top 10 Free Things to Do in NYC



Description:

Hotels, Broadway shows, restaurant meals...just walking out the door in New York can cost you a small fortune. But with a little energy and (in some cases) advance planning, there are a number of things you can do in the city that don't cost a cent, from theater in Central Park, to outdoor movies in the shadow of the majestic New York Public Library, to a breezy ride on the Staten Island Ferry (a great view of the Statue of Liberty is a bonus). Close your wallet and open your mind to enjoy the best of free New York City.
