As all of you know I’m in NYC for vacation this summer and I wanted to share with all of you some things you can do for free in this amazing city.

Como todos vosotros ya sabéis estoy en NYC de vacaciones este verano y quería compartir con vosotros algunas cosas que puedes hacer gratis en esta increíble ciudad.

Walk through the Boorklyn Bridge

Walking throught the Brooklyn Bridge is maybe one of the must-do for every tourist but you should go deeper, don’t stay in the bridge and visit Brooklyn, there’s a lot of things to do. From taking a walk by Williamsburg, to the amazing views of the Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Dumbo neighbourhood, walk through the Brooklyn Heighs Promenade or the flea markets like Smorgasburg.

Atravesar el puente de Brooklyn es una de las visitas obligatorias de los turistas pero deberías ir más al fondo, no te quedes en el puente y adéntrate en Brooklyn, hay muchísimas cosas que hacer. Desde dar un paseo por Williamsburg hasta las increíbles vistas del Brooklyn Bridge Park, el barrio de Dumbo, caminar por Brooklyn Heighs Promenade or los mercadillos como Smorgasburg.

Free Museums

If you like museums, New York has a lot of free museums, ‘pay what you want’ or the ones you have to pay it’s possible that they have a free day, so one day at the week you don’t have to pay.

Si te gustan los museos, Nueva York tiene muchos museos gratis, ‘paga lo que quieras’ o los que tienes que pagar es probable que tengan un día gratis, por lo que un día a la semana no tienes que pagar.

Manhattan Skyline and Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty is the most idyllic place in NYC and you can access the island paying 18$ but you can see her relatively close for free, you just have to take the Staten Island Ferry that it’s free and it will take you, obviously, to Staten Island, passing in front the Statue Of Liberty and leaving behind an amazing views of the Manhattan skyline.

La Estatua de a Libertad es el sitio más idílico de NYC y puedes acceder a la isla pagando 18$ pero la puedes ver relativamente cerca gratis, solo tienes que coger el ferry de Staten Island que es gratis  y te llevará, obviamente, a Staten Island, pasando por delante de la Estatua de la Libertad y dejando atrás unas increíbles vistas del horizonte de Manhattan.

Central Park

Called the New York lung too, Central Park is well known by everybody and it’s an obligatory stop if you come to the city. It’s an enormous park, manmade and free. I suggest to spent the whole day in the park, prepare a picnic and spend your day walking through all of that vegetation and squirrels. If you are lucky maybe you find free concerts or shows.

También llamado el pulmón de Nueva York, Central Park es bien conocido por todos y es una parada obligatoria si vienes a la ciudad. Es un parque enorme, construido por el hombre y gratis. Sugiero pasar el día entero en el parque, prepárate un picnic y gasta tu día caminando entre toda esa vegetación y ardillas. Si tiene suerte a lo mejor encuentras conciertos o espectáculos gratis.
