Free things to do in New York City
Central Park
http://www.centralparknyc.org/site/PageNavigator/virtualpark_main




Central Park is one of the urban wonders of the world, a green oasis in the great concrete, high-
rise landscape of New York City. It is so naturally part of the Manhattan environment that many
people may not realize it is entirely man-made.

But what every Park visitor does know is that Central Park is a haven. It is a place where all of us
can alter the frenetic rhythms that make New York the most exciting city in the world. We can sit on
a bench and read the paper, toss a ball with friends, jog, cycle, or play with our children.
Connections with Central Park run especially deep with New Yorkers. We tend to think of the Park
as our own front yard.

From Penn Station: Take the M4 bus to 83rd Street and Madison Avenue. See the MTA website

                   Tour City Hall   Photography by Andrew Moore, Courtesy of the Art Commission of the City of New York


                   .Tours  are available on weekdays and are offered free of charge.
                   To make a reservation, please fill out the form at
                   http://www.nyc.gov/html/artcom/html/tours/city_hall.shtml or call 311 (212-NEW-
                   YORK outside of New York City).One of the oldest continuously used City Halls in
                   the nation that still houses its original governmental functions, New York's City Hall
                   is considered one of the finest architectural achievements of its period. Constructed
                   from 1803 to 1812, the building was an early expression of the City's
cosmopolitanism.




Brooklyn Bridge http://www.nyctourist.com/bridge2.htm




From Manhattan,                              you can get to the bridge across the street from City
Hall Park. To get to the bridge, take the 4,5 or 6 subway to the Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall Station,
the N or R subway to City Hall or the 2 or 3 subway to Park Place.

It's quite a walk from end to end. It's just as satisfying to go to the middle of the bridge and then
walk back. That way, you've truly walked the length of the bridge. If you are a trooper and want to
head to Brooklyn, visit the beautiful section of Brooklyn Heights which is located just south of the
bridge.
   Both bicycles and pedestrians are free to use the wooden walkway which is elevated over the
               traffic. You'll find a great cross section of people coming and going on this bridge.
