With the financial problems being experienced by much of the world and the main attractions in NYC being expensive to say the least, we at FeelNYC provide you with a review of the best free things to do in the big apple.
Probably one of the most famous things to do in New York is to visit Central Park. Like most parks it is free to enter however most parks aren´t Central Park. The park is full of free events, street performers, human statues and pretty much anything else you can think of. There is also an “imagine” mosaic where John Lenon was killed in 1980 which is worth visiting.
After walking round the park, quench your thirst with a visit to Brooklyn breweries with free tours that run on the hour from 1-5 on Saturdays and 1-4 on Sundays. The brewery can be found at 79 N 11th St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
If seeing some of New York´s finest art is on your wish list, try visiting the Chelsea galleries; the most concentrated group of art galleries in the city found in the 20s Streets between 10th and 11th Avenues. For an even better experience, try going on a Thursday when they have wine and cheese openings.
If animals is more your thing why not visit the Bronx zoo on a Wednesday. They offer a “pay what you wish” policy. Obviously they expect a small donation but this seems a small price to pay to visit the country´s biggest and oldest zoo.
The only complaint you might have is that your kids won´t want to leave!
