NYC is the greatest city in the world - the glitz and glamour leave us in awe, but we still can’t bring ourselves to pay double digits for a concert or show. There’s no reason to panic, because there are still hundreds of fun free events and free things to do in New York. We’ve put together NYC Free Events Calendar with the best Free Things To Do in NYC: free concerts (classical, jazz, pop, rock, opera), comedy shows, free art exhibitions (museum, galleries), free and cheap party and nightlife activities to do right now, today, tomorrow, every week day and on the weekend - in all NYC boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens & the Bronx.
