Destination: New York City
About this photo: A typical night in Times Square
Best deal found: Good luck saving money in New York…if you want to give your wallet a break, you might explore Central Park, Times Square, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, or the Village for example. Also, the Metropolitan Museum has only a “suggested” admission price, so it could be cheap if you’re comfortable with that sort of thing.
