We’ve put together a pretty long list of free and cheap things to do in New York City, but here are some of our favorites: Walk along the High Line. Picnic in Central Park. Explore the street art in the Bushwick neighborhood. Watch the Today Show being filmed. Take a Free Walking Tour.
This is Rockefeller Center’s own pass which includes a ticket for Top of the Rock and also the Rockefeller Center Tour (a $25 value). This pass costs $52 per person, regardless of age. If you bought each attraction separately you would pay a total of $63 for an adult and $57 per child.
“I definitely think you can live comfortably on a salary of $50,000, even in New York City ,” says Haskins. “It’s an expensive city, but I think if you know where your money is going and you recognize what your priorities are, it’s totally doable.”
Yes you can , you won’t live the life of luxury and you won’t be living on the island, but you can work and live in the five boroughs of NYC on that salary. My first job wasn’t much more than 40k and it was hourly non salary pay without benefits.
$80k is enough technically but it would be a far more comfortable situation to split a place 2 or 3 ways if hell bent on living in Manhattan. Wouldn’t leave you with a lot left over after paying a $2,000 rent bill plus all utilities on your own.
