New York City is one of the most expensive cities in the US, but there’s no lack of free yet fabulous things to do. For instance, did you know that you can watch free musical performances at Julliard? Or that you can view the latest exhibits at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) for no admission fee?
Attend a wine tasting; visit Rockaway Beach; walk on one of the most famous streets in the world. These and dozens of other free things to do will keep you captivated in the Big Apple, no matter your budget.
So even if your wallet is light as a feather, with a little creativity, you can experience quintessential New York. Get Tracy’s list of 62 free things to do in NYC, in this #2 post of the year.

Life in New York City doesn’t come cheap, but there’s no shortage of inexpensive or free things to do, either. Even if your wallet is on the thin side, you can immerse yourself in all this city has to offer, yet manage to stay on a budget. Ask most any New Yorker about the greatest aspects of life here, and you’ll get a bargain list because some of the best things in New York are free.
Here’s a diverse lineup to get you started, but this is in no way comprehensive. Each season brings more sights and activities, many of which cost only transportation to and from, or $2.50 each way by subway or bus.
1. Walk on the High Line.
2. Visit MoMA on a Friday between 4 and 8 p.m.
3. Go on a Chelsea gallery crawl –– try Thursday night for free wine.
4. Get lost in the West Village.
5. Ride the Staten Island Ferry.
