9 FREE things to do in New York if you win

If you’re lucky enough to win this amazing prize, you can experience ‘The City That Never Sleeps’ – and it can be surprisingly wallet-friendly, too. Here’s how to take a bite of the Big Apple on a budget.

1. Take a walking tour

One of the best bits about New York is its incredible buildings, so you can tick a number of the main sights off your list simply by stepping outside.

Head into Grand Central Station to check out the setting of many silver screen ‘girl-meets-boy’ moments. Then peer up at the ‘girl-reunites-with-boy-after-drama’ spot, the Empire State Building.

Take in the buzz of Chinatown and Little Italy, and head through trendy Greenwich Village, where you can pose for a photo outside Carrie’s famous Sex and the City doorstep.

2. Go Big at Macy’s

Remember that scene in Big when Tom Hanks plays Chopsticks with his feet? That was in New York’s FAO Schwarz toy store, which unfortunately closed down last year. However, NYC superstore Macy’s has adopted the giant floor keyboard so you can still have your very own ‘Big kid’ moment.

3. Take a walk along the High Line

The High Line is a disused railway track that’s been converted into a public park. Running above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side, it’s 1.45 miles long, so the perfect distance for a leisurely stroll, or perhaps an early morning jog.

With rugged patches of grass, wooden benches and strips of old train track, it makes for a unique location with gorgeous views across the city and water.

4. Kayak the Hudson River

Manhattan’s skyline is impossible to take in when you’re in the thick of it – at least not without giving yourself some form of neck strain. A great way to see it in all its glory, then, is to get out on the water. To encourage this, many boathouses on the various Hudson River piers loan out kayaks for free. Click here to find out more.

5. See the Statue of Liberty

There are a plethora of boat tours that take you up to the Statue of Liberty and on the island, but the cost to do this will have you believing it’s money that keeps Madame’s torch burning.

Instead, take the free Staten Island Ferry. It’s decidedly unglamorous, but if you head out to the open-air deck at the back you will capture some fantastic pictures of the statue with the Manhattan Skyline in the background.

6. Swim in Astoria Park’s outdoor pool

The huge stretch of turquoise that is Astoria Park’s outdoor pool is the perfect spot to while away a summer’s day in New York. Recline in the shallow end of the public pool while taking in the striking sights of the Robert F Kennedy and Hell Gate Bridges it’s situated between.

7. Visit the 9/11 Memorial

Take a moment to visit the site where the Twin Towers once stood before the terror attack on September 11, 2001.

The site is now home to a hauntingly beautiful memorial made up of two dark waterfall pools, which sit within the footprints of where the towers once stood. The surrounding bronze panelling is inscribed with the names of everyone who lost their lives in the attack.

You can also visit the Memorial Museum for free, although donations are of course welcome.

8. Stroll around Central Park

Central Park is an 843-acre oasis in the heart of Manhattan and it’s worth exploring as much of it as you can. It’s dotted with magical statues, lakes and pretty pavilions, and you can take a well-needed rest on one of the tranquil grassy verges.

9. Cross Brooklyn Bridge

Arguably the most iconic bridge in New York, a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge is a New York must-do. Do it at sunset to watch the city descend from day to night, and don’t forget to look right to spot the Statue of Liberty glowing in the distance.
