Free Things to do in NYC


Hello loves! I hope you're all having an amazing weekend. I've officially been in NYC for 3 weeks now, and I'm having an absolute blast. Since I've been to the city numerous times, people always ask for my recommendations for things to do when visiting. Today I thought I would share with y'all 4 of my favorite things to do that are absolutely free. I think I will post a comprehensive roundup of all my favorite things to do at the end of my time here, but I thought it would be fun to start with a few free ones. Let me know if you enjoy this post!

Museum at FIT


This is a fun thing to do if you're interested in fashion. The exhibits are always changing, but both times I've gone they're had amazing vintage pieces from iconic designers such as Dior and Chanel. It's a small museum so it won't take a lot of time to go visit either!

9/11 Memorial


This is an incredible thing to go see if you've never been. The memorial consists of two pools in the same spots where the twin towers stood, and the names of everyone who lost their lives surround the pools. You have to pay to go inside the 9/11 museum (which I definitely recommend), but viewing the memorial is absolutely free. 

Central Park


Central Park is a beautiful oasis in the city and is perfect for walking/jogging, or just for taking photos. There are so many trails and landmarks that you can spend as much or as little time here as you want. I've been loving going here on a sunny afternoon and walking the trails. 

The Highline


The Highline is an old train track elevated above the street that has been converted into a park. It overlooks the water and you can access it from multiple points in the Meatpacking District and in Chelsea. There are also booths selling food and drinks along the path if you need a pick-me-up. The Highline offers amazing views and is a great place to snap photos. 

I will be in NYC for 7 more weeks, so I still have many things to try. Let me know what your favorite thing to do in the city is!
