New York City is one of my dream destinations. With an absolute number of things to do, photographic opportunities and historical landmarks, this city which is also known as the Big Apple is great place to experience. New York is composed of five boroughs. Brooklyn and Queens are geographically part of Long Island, while Manhattan and Staten Island are islands and the Bronx is attached to the US mainland. These islands are linked to each other by tunnels, bridges and ferries.

Sure, the city is full of these types of indulgences, but most of them are too expensive for me. After doing some research, I found out that this metropolis also offers so many free and cheap things to see and do around the five boroughs without going bankrupt.
