NYC on the Cheap is your one-stop resource for everything that’s great, wonderful and exciting about the greatest, most wonderful, most exciting city on the planet. We’re here to help you take an inexpensive bite out of New York City restaurants, theater, museums, shopping, events and more.
Your guide is Evelyn Kanter, a native and lifelong New Yorker and award-winning professional journalist and photographer. I’ve been writing about my hometown forever, and traveling the world to remind myself that there’s no place like home.
My not-so-secret resume includes a decade as consumer reporter on WABC-TV “Eyewitness News”, and ABC News network affiliate stations, and before that on WCBS Radio “Newsradio 88” and the CBS Radio Network, where I reported on frauds, rip-offs, dangerous products and best buys.
For those of you who have been in New York City for longer than a New York minute, that means I worked with local broadcast legends including Roger Grimsby, Bill Beutel and Rosanne Scamardella.
News nuts everywhere will appreciate that I also worked with network broadcast news legends including Peter Jennings, Walter Cronkite, Charles Osgood and Ed Bradley.
Evelyn Kanter is available for writing and editing assignments,
and speaking engagements about NYC, consumer issues, and travel.

I’m also the writer or editor of a bookshelf full of New York City and New York State guidebooks and the NYC on the Cheap smartphone app, and I write about New York City and other destinations for publications including Orbitz, AAA World and USA Today.
My NYC smartphone app, launched originally as NYC Free and Frugal, has been renamed NYC on the Cheap.
- It is currently unavailable on the iTunes store or on Google Play and is being updated.
In the meantime, you can find my NYC itineraries on Bindu Trips, where I am the senior NYC travel advisor.
My most recent guidebook is Peaceful Places New York City, with 100+ places to find tranquility and serenity in this city better known for sensory overload. It’s all but sold out at bookstores and online sellers, so if you want a copy, email me; I have a few copies left.
New York City is my hometown, and I love to share it!
