    Default New York and Boston Cheap Tricks

    Just a few random things that I know of ....

    In New York:

    The Staten Island Ferry is FREE - You can't get much cheaper than that and you'll get great views of lower Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, etc.

    There is a great little theatre in the Village (I think) called the Thirteenth Street Theatre. It's about as low cost an evening of New York Theatre as you're likely to get, and at least the last time I was there (too many years ago) they gave free beer to the audience and encouraged audience participation in the melodrama being presented.

    Central Park - again FREE

    While it seems a bit incongruous in New York City, the National Museum of the American Indian is part of the Smithsonian and is FREE

    In Boston:

    The best way to discover Boston is to walk the Freedom Trail. The walk itself is FREE, of course, as are many of the sights along it such as the Commons, the State House (complete with guided tours), Faneuil Hall (a market with historical talks every half hour), USS Constitution (Old Ironsides, FREE guided tours).

    Not quite free, but pretty close - The Paul Revere House ($2.50) and Old North Church ("One if by land and two if by sea....", Donations).

    You get the idea.
