As always, there’s plenty to do in NYC free and cheap on weekends, including on this last weekend of 2015. NYC cheap weekend activities include taking a ride on a vintage NYC subway, enjoying the holiday store windows and more without busting your holiday budget.
Unlike other “what to do in NYC on the weekend” lists, only NYC on the Cheap gives you only FREE and cheap ($10 or less), unless you buy things. Unless a price is noted, what we are telling you about is FREE.
Let’s hope the weather cooperates with the outdoor events.
