Big Apple, Small Price Tag
New York City is among the most expensive places in the world to live or to visit, but it's also among the richest in free or inexpensive things to do and cheap places to eat. If you're planning a visit to the Big Apple this year, look past the city’s skyscrapers and try some of these down-to-earth diversions. Don't worry; you'll still get to take in some of the city's most iconic sites while discovering some hidden gems only the locals know. You can even get around easily without breaking the bank: The subway system is extensive, Citi Bikes abound, and walking is a preferred mode of transportation (though you'll likely need to walk a little faster than you're used to!).
Note: Be sure to check rules and restrictions in advance before visiting any destinations.
