18. 5th Avenue. Window shop at all the fancy stores, check out St. Patrick’s Cathedral, see the famous Plaza Hotel, dare to go in the Apple Store glass cube (there is usually a long line), go into the famous FAO Schwarz toy store, admire the fancy uptown apartments as you head north along Central Park.
And there you have it, 27 fun, free, family friendly things to do in NYC. Do you have any other must do things to add to my list? I’d love to hear…
28. The High Line Park. The High Line was originally built to ensure safer travels for trains and cars in the early 1930′s. Before 1930, 10th avenue was nicknamed Death Avenue because of all of the train and street traffic accidents. The growth of interstate trucking led to a decline in the use of railroads and the high line. The last train runs on the high line in 1980. The park is renovated and fully opened to the public in June of 2011. Read more history here.
29. Chelsea Market. This market is located below the High Line at 15th Street. This is an always changing venue complete with restaurants, bakeries, markets, artists, and a flea market. Grab the kids lunch and a cupcake, while you browse the cuteness. It is open Monday – Saturday from 7am to 9pm and Sundays from 8am to 7pm.
p.s. take a cupcake tour of downtown Manhattan
p.p.s. Tales of a Trophy Wife let me know that “NYC loves the military. With a military ID you can get your entire family in free to: Museum of Natural History, and the MOMA. The USO often times gives away free Broadway tickets. The Navy Lodge on Staten Island is great and well under $100/a night for the entire family.” Check out the comments for more great tips
