I'll be in NYC in March with my boyfriend and staying in TriBeCa. We are on a budget and would like to pack as much as we can in 4 days.
We are interested in finding cool bars (he's really into craft beers), good restaurants and interesting things to find when you're walking about. Also great places for photo ops.
Tribeca is a good place to stay because it's close to a lot of downtown tourist attractions and many are free --- Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, check out Wall Street, Battery Park, the South Street Sea Port, Hudson River Park. I also recommend these free activities: hang out in the East Village for an afternoon, visit Brooklyn, see Central Park, see Times Square.
The top of the Empire State Building is pretty cool. Comedy shows are fun. The E Village has some great bars depending on your style..! about 5 years ago
So jealous, NY is one of my all time favourite cities to wander around in - and its so cheap! (easily done on a budget)
When working in Philadelphia for a few months, I made several day trips to NY and had a ball. Heres my journal.
There is also a place on Broadway (half tix?) that sells tickets to shows same-day at a third of the price. I didnt get to do this, but plan on doing this for my next trip.
Have a great time!
