New York City is quite an appealing place.  It is literally one of the few places in the world that, if you don’t like the scenery of where you’re at just turn the corner and you’re in an entirely different environment.  

Not to mention the number of things you can do there from hiking the High Line Park to exploring the markets of Chinatown, even for your typical backpacker on a shoestring budget (like myself), there’s still plenty to see and do in the Big Apple.  Take a look at this video I put together with just a few thing to explore that’s both free and cheap.  Enjoy!

What would you recommend to do if on a shoestring budget while in the NYC?
