We love telling you about any outdoor event in the summer--especially if they're free! Make the most of the end of the weekend on Sunday by heading over to MoMa's sculpture garden for free classical and jazz concerts at 8pm. The doors open at 7pm and admission is on a first-come first-serve basis. There's four concerts left in July, two feature jazz music and two feature classical music. A perfectly relaxing way to end the weekend.

Free Museums

May 09, 2016

Library

New York is packed with museums to see, but the admission prices can really add up especially if you're traveling with the whole family. But some of these museums are free all the time and others have certain days or times when they are free. The African Burial Ground Memorial Site, New York Transit Museum at Grand Central, and the New York Public Library are just a few of the places you can visit that are always free. The Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Garden (not including special exhibits) are free on Wednesdays while MoMa is free on Fridays after 4pm and the New York Aquarium is free on Fridays after 3pm.
New York may seem expensive, but catch these awesome deals and you'll really won't be spending too much.

The Orchid Show

February 25, 2016

MDNY_orchids
As February comes to an end we start to think forward to spring. March can still be quite cold, but toward the end we can usually start to see a change in the weather pattern. Of course spring means flowers. What better way to kick off spring a bit early than at the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden. See beautiful hanging orchids in the conservatory, which will make you think of spring. There are also poetry readings, dance performances, orchid care demostrations, and Orchid Evenings where you can sip a cocktail while viewing the show. The Orchid Show begins February 27 and runs through April 17. Enjoy!
