Including over 700 free events and services in New York City, NYC for Free shows how the city opens its doors for free to visitors and residents tired of being nickel and dimed. Organized in 43 categories -- from museums to piano bars, from meditation instruction to classical music concerts -- this guide covers a wide breadth of listings, many of which are unknown even to the inveterate New Yorker. It is meant to address those looking for a pleasant night out for music, dance, or a lecture, for example, while shedding light on more serious matters like counseling, educational workshops and even cancer screenings.
Each listing includes names of events/services, locations, phone numbers, hours and descriptions. In addition, a calendar lists popular events each month. This light-weight, pocket-sized volume was written for people trying to save money while discovering hidden gems that would normally cost a heavy sum. Quite simply, it is a long list of things you might jot down if told by a friend, or spotted in a newspaper.
NYC for Free was written on the premise that people like free things, especially in New York City, which is notorious as a painfully expensive city to live in and visit. Just published in April, 1998, the book's information is fresh and reliable. Its author, a Brooklyn resident and former journalist, has been featured with the book on CBS News (New York, Channel 2) and the morning news and talk show, Good Day New York (FOX).
