In following the last few posts on budget travel in New York City, I thought i would write a quick post about things to do in NYC without breaking the bank. Here are some things to know.

Catch a Broadway show. You don’t need to buy your tickets in advance on Ticketmaster. You can actually by half-price tickets at the TKTS booth in Times Square. The booth is right across from the restaurant Blue Fin (where I dined at– check out my review). Here’s the little secret, though: You don’t need to go to TKTS to get low price Broadway tickets. I got my tickets, in the Orchestra section, for $62.50, which was half price. But the balcony tickets were selling online for $45. And the truth is that the theater is so small that it doesn’t really matter where you sit. I saw Westside Story, which was incredible.


My experience with NYC Restaurant Week 2010 was lukewarm. In retrospect, I should have tried more restaurants, but I only found out about it on my second day of my four day trip to NYC.

Every year, NYC holds “Restaurant Week”, where fine dining establishments offer a prix fixe menu at an affordable rate. This gives the budget conscious NYC foodies a chance to indulge their palettes while remaining true to their pocketbooks.


It’s not too difficult to dine cheap in New York City. While New York City remains famous for it’s culinary tradition and incredible restaurants, a bargain gourmand can eat well, whether it be it at cheap New York City restaurants or even while fine dining in New York City
