Travel Ladybugs: 4 Cheap Things To Do In NYC
New York City, known for its bustling streets and yellow cabs, is a one of a kind. But visiting this city that never sleeps can be expensive. If you’re a traveler on a budget, but want to explore this unique environment, here’s a fun and exciting list for you.
Watch a #Ham4Ham Show for free!
Are you a Broadway lover, but don’t have the funds to see a show? Fear not! Hamilton the Musical puts on a free show before their show, with outside performances featuring special guests and casts of the musical. Excited and hopeful Ham4Ham go-ers can even enter a lottery, getting a chance to win a discounted $10 ticket to see the actual musical. Beware, it can get a little bit crazy outside the Richard Rogers theater.
Get pizza for only $1.
One thing that New York City has (that I haven’t found anywhere else, at least) is $1 pizza. You’re probably thinking, this is too good to be true. I swear to you, it’s not only cheap, but it’s also really delicious. At the corner of Franklin Ave. and Broadway, you’ll find a little restaurant called Roll and Go $1 Pizza serving big slices of this amazing, cheesy goodness. You might even bump into vlogger/film-maker Casey Neistat, who can frequently be seen buying his share. Even if you don’t make it there, you’re sure to find other places selling this wonderfully priced pizza all around the city.
Join in on the fun of Improv Everywhere.
You know those Facebook videos of huge groups of people freeze in place at Grand Central Terminal or the pantless Subway riders on the NYC daily commute? That’s Improv Everywhere. Improv Everywhere is a “New York City-based comedy collective that stages unexpected performances in public places.” This organization brings people of all ages, from families to couples, together to make positive pranks in the midst of public life. Their documented “missions” have gotten over 20 million views, each presenting a unique and creative project. Head on over to their website to join these exciting pranks!
Watch outdoor movies.
What better way to watch a film, than a film under the stars? Across New York City’s various parks, you can pack a picnic, gather a group of friends, and cosy up to these summer screenings for free. Not only will you get an extraordinary view of the sky, but you’ll view a quintessential picturesque view of New York’s famous high rises.
