Savings on Culture in New York

If you are heading to New York City anytime soon, check out the November 12  guest blogpost by Jeff Dobbins at It offers many tips on low-cost or free attractions in the city, along with suggestions on how to eat inexpensively.
You probably already know about a lot of the free sights, like Central Park, Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building. but did you know the ferry to Staten Island, which sails by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, is also now free? (I can remember when it cost a quarter.)
New York has some of the best prices anywhere for high culture--for instance, same day tickets to Carnegie Hall for $10, and same day tickets for orchestra seats the Metropolitan Opera for $20 on weekdays or $25 on Saturdays. And for half-price same day tickets to Broadway and off-Broadway shows, there are always the TKTS booths, of which the most convenient is at Times Square.
This guest post is well worth printing out and tucking away for your next visit to New York.
