Free Activities


A few days ago a colleague and I were talking about how there are many free or inexpensive activities in New York City. However, the tourists are actually the ones who take advantage of them more than the locals. There’s even an “IDNYC” card you can sign for and get a free one-year membership for a curated list of cultural institutions in New York.

Last year was my first time taking the Staten Island ferry during sunset, believe it or not. Recently I went back again, but this time with a few friends which was an amazing experience as always.

  1. I LOVE your pictures, the city skyline is one of my favorites to capture. You hit it right on the head when you say locals don’t take advantage of this gold mine of a city we live in. It wasn’t until I was looking for inexpensive things to do with my daughter that I took a trip on the ferry. She loved it and I found it super relaxing too!

  2. I absolutely love your pictures as always. I haven’t rode the Staten Island Ferry since I was just a little kiddo. New Yorkers really don’t take advantage of all the city has to offer. I haven’t even been to the Empire State Building yet. But I am planning to apply for the IDNYC eventually.
