We all know that a trip to NYC isn’t exactly cheap. From transportation and accommodations to top attractions, a trip to NYC can quickly add up especially if you don’t plan ahead. One easy way to make the most of your budget in The Big Apple is by enjoying some of the free sites. From parks to clubs, there are hundreds of great destinations and attractions that won’t cost you a dime. Pristine Agency invites you to take a closer look at 3 of these destinations.
Prospect Park is located in Brooklyn and is one of the borough’s gems. It was created shortly after Central Park by the same landscapers. It features its own zoo, boating lake and carousel. It’s the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. One of the best aspects of Prospect Park is the free concerts. They take place every Saturday night throughout the summer. It’s a perfect venue, whether you want to lie back on a blanket and picnic in the grass, or make your way closer to the stage.
One of the best architectural experiences that won’t cost a thing in this exorbitantly priced city is the Brooklyn Bridge. It crosses NYC’s East River, and links Manhattan to Brooklyn. Its construction was completed in 1883 and it is one of the oldest steel and wire suspension bridges in the US. You don’t have to brave the notorious New York traffic to traverse it to. You can stroll across on the pedestrian walkway. The Brooklyn end of the bridge has recently been redeveloped and has parks, piers and a carousel. The Manhattan end is close to City Hall and the New York City Supreme Court.
Who doesn’t love a good laugh? You can catch some of the best up and coming comics in NYC for free. Sunday nights are free at the Knitting Factory. The gig is hosted by Hannibal Buress and features some of the hottest comics. If you’re looking to nosh on a little free pizza along with your free show hit up the Alligator Lounge on Tuesday nights.
Don’t let experiencing the Big Apple take a bite out of your wallet. These free experiences will help you save some money. Take that extra cash and go splurge on one of the many amazing restaurants that this city has to offer.
