You know it’s summer in NYC when the free events start. For such an expensive city, there are quite a few amazing cultural things to do for gratis when it’s sweltering out. One of the classics is the HBO Bryant Park Film Festival which kicks off Monday, 6/17. Grab a blanket and cool off with Tootsie. There won’t be any hydrogenated kernels in sight. Instead, we will be there with artisanal popcorn: Classic Mediterranean, Zen Cheddar and Pure Caramel.
What other freebies are there? Here’s a partial list of our favorites:
- Philharmonic in Central Park
- Movies movies movies
- Shakespeare in the Park
- Midsummer Night Swing at Lincoln Center (you can join the crowds and dance outside the paying section)
- Summerstage concerts
