The 100 Best Free Things to Do in New York City

Jump to last reply

I solicited members on the Europe forum for their take on the best free but marvelous things to do in Paris based partly on being inspired by a trip report by quicksilver, a member traveling in Paris now who posted a list of great rainy day picnic spots in Paris.

So, the Europe forum has begun listing some activities:

Of course, I love to dream of Paris, but I live in New York. Over lunch, an editor and I argued/discussed whether there were more free things to do in Paris than there were in New York City.

So... in the spirit of a little friendly competition, I'm hoping to have a rival list here in the U.S. forum devoted to NYC. I'll then print it out and happily cross off each one I've done and then pursue the remainder.

Paris will have to wait...but hopefully not for long.

((I)) What is your favorite guilt-FREE pleasure in New York?
