Top 10 - NYC on a Budget



Description:

You don't have to break the bank to enjoy a visit to the Big Apple...there are plenty of bargains to be found even in one of the most expensive cities in the world. For shopping and great cheap food (try the dim sum), head to Chinatown. Tour historic South Street Seaport and pick up some discount Broadway tickets at the TKTS booth there. Check out the Union Square Greenmarket, or head to Coney Island for a walk along the boardwalk and a Nathan's Famous hot dog. At Upright Citizens Brigade, catch cheap--or even free!--comedy shows. Corner Bistro burgers and Caracas arepas are among the city's best, and Angelica and Tartine draw crowds for their great food and BYOB policies. For dessert, scoop up a sweet Italian treat at the tiny Il laboratorio del gelato. Finally, the Cosmopolitan in Tribeca gives you an affordable but comfortable home base in a great location for exploring the city.
