Free things to do in New York

Jump to last reply

After much research, I am compiling my document for upcoming trip to New York. Apart from the usual (walk the Williamsburg bridge, Staten Island ferry etc), I have made this list of free activities in New York this summer. Thought it might interest some of you too...
• Bryant Park free activities/ movie screenings etc
• Broadway in Bryant Park
Every Thursday – 12:30-13:30 on the lawn, songs from Broadway shows
• Summer Streets
• Harlem Week
• SummerStage
• Rumble on the River
• Union Square greenmarket (on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday),
4, 5, 6 to Union Sq.
• Discover Central Park with a free, volunteer-led guided tour from the Central Park Conservancy.
• Lincoln Center Out of Doors Free festival
24 July until 11 August
• Visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The $25 entry fee is actually a suggested donation.
1000 5th Ave. at 80th St 6 to 86th St.
. www.metmuseum.org
• MoMA is free on Friday between 4 and 8 pm.. Arrive as close to 4 as you can, and once you get your ticket (the line is long but fast), avoid the crowds by working your way down from the fifth floor. 11 W. 53rd St., between 5th and 6th Aves. www.moma.org E, M to 5th Ave./53rd St.; B, D, F to 47-50th St./Rockefeller Center.
• Shakespeare in the Park
Some free tickets are distributed on day of performance:
