We're going to go to New York for our (wait for it)...10 FREAKING YEAR anniversary (of being together. not married).

We're going in May for 7 days Smiley smile

This will be my husband's first time to New York, and my second (but last time was with my high school, so the activities were planned for us).

Please share your tips for saving money in New York!

Places to stay!

Show tickets!

Places to eat!

Fun things to do!

Comfy but stylish footwear for stompin' 'round the streets of New York!


We have a couple of activities planned already. We're going to a Yankees game, and we have tickets to a non-musical Broadway show.

    So amazing! I love NYC and want to bring my Husband one day. I've been twice and he has never been.

    In Times Square there are double decker bus tours. You pay for the day, or I think you can do a couple days. It does a huge loop (central park area, 5th ave, down to the ferry) and you can hop on and off at any stop as many times as you want. This was the way we travelled both times we went and it was the best thing ever!

    Yes! that's what I've heard! I've also looked at Broadway for Broke People, and it looks like a lot of the bigger shows like Hamilton and Lion King do daily lotteries where you pay only $10-$40 for the tickets if your name gets drawn.

    I was just in NYC. We saved over $150 by going to the ticket booth for Broadway than online!

    If you stay in new jersey by the port authority path train it goes right into the world trade centre and you can get a WAYYYY cheaper place to stay (air bnb), see if you can book elis island for the empire state building . ive gone 7 times to NYC and havent ever gone cuz its booked MONTHS in advance. we also did the monday night magic show which is dirt cheap and amazing. and of course all the typical siteseeing places rocafella centre, times sq etc. i also did the siteseeing bus and you can hop on and off and it goes to brooklyn and all over the different areas of NYC (manhatten, Brooklyn etc), also check out canal street for some cheap shopping!

    Interesting - she told me the opposite. They went to the booths and the tickets were more expensive than they were online before they left. Maybe it was a popular show or something lol

    I'm also a huge Yankees fan lol!

    The 9/11 Memorial is definitely on the list! I saw ground zero the last time I was there but the memorial hadn't been built yet.

    Interesting what you say about buying tickets in advance, because I've heard the opposite. In New York you can go to the TKTS booths and get discount tickets day of. If you book in advance, you're looking at $160 USD/ticket plus service fees for buying online!

    We're looking at AirBnB and VRBO. Hotel prices are insane!

    That sounds like a great trip! My sister lived in NYC for almost a decade.
    I don't have suggestions for places to go, but I'm all about the comfy shoes! www.wevibe.com I absolutely *love* their boots. They are so comfortable and I've had many people mistake them for actual Docs. I can walk miles in them.

    Have a great trip!

    My sister LOVES New York, literally loves - she's a Yankees fan - we have no idea where she gets it from LOL.


    She went to New York a few years ago. In her opinion, you MUST go to the 9/11 memorial - she said it is the most moving place she has ever gone to.


    She did a bike tour around central park which she said is really fun - not sure when you're going in May and how cold it'll be though.


    Her favourite restaurant is Patsy's - it's an italian restaurant.


    If you want to do broadway - buy your tickets in advance. They're too expensive in New York.


    I'd probably see if you can snag an AirBnB - hotels are expensive as heck out there.

    That's so exciting!


    I haven't been to NYC in about ten years, but we stayed in New Jersey and took a bus or train in. So much cheaper than staying in Manhattan.
    Top of the Rock (Rockefeller center) has an amazing view. We did this instead of the Empire State building because you get a view of the Empire State building.
    Central Park is a must. I've been in May and in December and it was beautiful both times.
