"Believe it or not there are quite a few great things to do for next to nothing or free! American Museum of Natural History and The Metropolitan Museum of Art are both pay what you can, I've paid as little as a dollar! Its not a well known fact because they would prefer you to pay the recommended $20 but the key word there is recommended. Just place your money on the counter and say "1 please." :) Also MoMa (Museum of Modern Art) is free after 5pm on Fridays!!! Here's the dealio with that though (cause there is always a catch) its a little crazy with A LOT of people. I suggest taking a good look at their website and decide on specific pieces you might want to see because they will close at 8pm or so, you won't have time to see everything. Also I recommend waiting till closer to 6pm as the line will have died down (before 5 it will be around the block) and you can usually just walk right in. Bryant Park also has a lot of really great events that are free and if you can stand the line ice skating (in season) is also free with a nominal skate rental fee. The Public Library which sits behind Bryant Park also has loads of free events. Take a look at both of their websites to see the calendar! Now this next one does cost money, but at a fraction of the price that it would normally. Yes, I'm talking Broadway Theatre! There are a handful of shows that conduct what is called a Lottery. You show up 2 hours before the show starts and you enter your name for up to two tickets. The most expensive ticket is around $36 and they are always for either the front row or box seats, these seats can sometimes run $500 or more!!!!! Most of the time you have to have cash on hand and you pay for them immediately after winning. I have personally won the lottery for "Book of Mormon," "Kinky Boots," and I have won "Wicked" three times!!!!! There are also other options for saving lots of money.....!!!"  See More

"I always recommend Brooklyn Bridge and the Staten Island Ferry first as "must sees."  See More
