1. The high line is one of my favorites! I have been looking forward to hitting up the new section that just opened. Glad it was awesome!

  2. I’ve never even heard of the high-line, so this was super informative. Not sure when I’ll next visit NYC, but I’ll keep this in mind!

    Love that you got such a great discount on your meal, too!

  3. Those sofas are so cool. I am too shy, so I probably would only watch the action with longing. When I think of NYC – I think big $, but it looks like there are lots of things to do that don’t require big bucks.

  4. I love going to the high line! And I love Moroccan food so I will have to look out for a Groupon to that place. I have been hit or miss with my Groupon restaurant choices, so I always love when I hear that places are actually cheap and good.

    • That restaurant was really good, and the service was awesome too. Our groupon was actually expired (oops, not smart of us!) but they were nice enough to honor it (we asked nicely!). It’s definitely not a cheap place and we wouldn’t have gone there without the groupon, but it was nice to eat a 4 course dinner and feel like fancy people 🙂

  5. NCY is way fun! Only been a couple of times with my wife when she lived in New Jersey but thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Our favorite frugal date/activity is probably walking in the park or watching a movie on Netflix.

  6. We haven’t been to NYC yet but I’m hoping to go one of these days. These all look like really great suggestions. I’m not going to lie though, the thought of going to NYC is a little overwhelming because it looks like there is SO MUCH to do see and explore. Obviously you can’t do everything in one trip, but I would have a really hard time narrowing it down : )

    I totally agree with you, people watching is really is a great frugal activity.

    • There’s a lot to do, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Just go and do what the locals do and stay away from the tourist traps. I think that’s true anywhere you go.

  7. I have never heard of this. I do so want to go to NYC soon. I have a goof friend up there so all I would have to pay for is the transport and my food expenses. Its interesting tips like this that make me want to go more. I know NYC can be so expensive for lots of things but I know there are lots of gems like these for free.

  8. Highline is beautiful…what a great idea for using it as a park. They are thinking about doing that here in Queens for LIRR train tracks that are no longer in use, but there is no funding for it. A lot more money for Manhattan projects of course!

  9. I saw the High Line on the news one day and think it is an awesome idea. I am glad you take advantage of such the place. Enjoy and thank you for sharing.
