Only 2.5 days in Manhattan - where to eat and what to do for FUN?

In NYC/Manhattan for 2.5 days for tours of prospective music schools for a student musician - what to do for FUN in between visiting the schools? And any suggestions on dining? Must be "under 21" accomodating, and "budget friendly" :)

I'd make sure to hop on the L train and take it one stop into Brooklynto walk around Williamsburg. If you'll be coming to NYC for the music, you'll definitely want to experience the Williamsburg's vibes.

Hello Shelly,

This one is so easy:  There is a music venue called the Jazz Gallery.  It features young musicians.  It costs $10 or $15 to hear wonderful and inspiring music.  And, there is no food, no alcohol.  You can buy a bottle of water for $1.  This is a non-profit that nurtures young musicians.

I recommend The Harold NYC in Greeley Square. Its right on 32nd street. You can walk down Korea Town to 5th Aves after, there tons of cool shops, karaoke bars, and cafes. Also, walk south on 5th from 32nd, and check out the sample sale at 260 5th Ave., between 29th & 28th, there are always great deals to be had!

Budget friendly peeps should always check out groupon and/or living social for great deals on food and fun! The tourist traps are not very budget friendly so unless you really want to I would stay away from Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, Statue of Liberty, etc. Food trucks can also be expensive when you might think otherwise so be careful, although one of the best eats comes from a food truck. The Halal Guys are usually close to Museum of Modern Art around 53/54th st. $8-$10 gets you a huge amount of food and sometimes its enough to share! Just look for the red and yellow umbrellas and the line!

There is so much to do in New York City and the outer boroughs it would take years to list them all. I would recommend nyc.gov and eat nyc. You will find alot of places to see and eat that either free or cheap. Just remember there are a lot of tourist traps out there. Because somewhere cost a lot, doesn't mean it is great.

You should spend an evening in St Marks Place in East Village. Especially by the Little Tokyo Inc area between 2nd & 3rd Aves. There are so many affordable student-friendly restaurants and each one of them is so unique you can't find anything like that anywhere else.
