What are Larry Echaverry’s favorite free things to do in New York City?
There are a lot of great free things to do in New York City. Here's my list:
1. The Times Square ball drop on December 31 is free.
2. Visit Ground Zero.
3. The Macy’s Parade at Thanksgiving is free.
4. See the Rockefeller Christmas tree lighting, which is normally the last week of November. That’s a big free event where they have a bunch of concerts by celebrities.
5. There’s no cost to get on the Staten Island Ferry — you can get on it and have a view of the Statue of Liberty without paying a fee.
