Over the years I had accumulated a bunch of links on New York City, my hometown and one of the most popular destinations in the world. New York’s people, its energy, its culture and events, bring millions to the city every year. But how many more cut short their time here or don’t come at all because of the prices? Probably alot and probably alot more than the tourism board wants to admit to.

So I’m doing my public service and put together a list of links that show in detail how to save on everything from Broadway tickets to hotels. Click them all and read through because you never know what gem of a tip is beyond the link. And tell Mayor Bloomberg Brian sent you!

I have one you might want to add. Its called City Maps and it is an awesome tool to help people get around the city. It like yahoo, mapquest, open table, yelp… everything on one website. Check it out.

Looks great. I love the detail that shows the shops and stores on individual city blocks. Thanks for the tip!

Having lived in NYC for a while now, I think it gets a bad rap for being overly expensive. You can spend a ton of money here, but you don’t need to. In fact, some of the best restaurants in town are also some of the cheapest I’ve enjoyed in the US. Poke around and if possible get a local guide and you will have a blast without busting your wallet.

I completely agree. There is always a way to navigate any major city without busting the budget. And with the Internet, all that info is readily available at your fingertips. Problem is many people don’t look for it because they ASSUME they won’t find it.
