    New York City in July

    Hi guys, I'm planning a trip to NYC in July to see Monkey: Journey to the West. I don't have a ton of money at the moment and we aren't planning to stay very long. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some cheap things to see and do? I've been to NYC a couple times when I was younger, I've seen the Statue of Libery, Empire State Building, etc. Also, cheap places to crash for a night or two would be greatly appreciated. We're thinking maybe the best plan is to find a cheap hotel in Jersey then bus or train ride it into the city. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

    Yes I agree with your plans with Jersey, that should probably save you a lot of money since most of the hotels in NYC just cost a fortune. You could always "couchsurf" if you're feeling adventurous. You could also try to find a Bed&Breakfast since they should also be reasonably priced...
    For food you should head out into other parts of the city like Chinatown or Brooklyn, in order to not spend all of your money on over-priced Manhattan food.

    I ended not doing the Jersey thing and instead ended up booking a room at the Pod hotel, it's not terribly expensive and it will get us pretty close to where the show is. It has bunk-beds and shared bathrooms, but I think it's pretty new and modern so it will be nice. I'd like to check out the MoMA possibly on Friday, then sleep at the hotel one night, then go to Monkey the next day, then catch a bus back that evening. It will be a pretty brief whirlwind trip but I think it will be a lot of fun.

    New York city is great for shopping. Lots of places to get some great, decently priced food as well. A trip to Coney Island is fun and you can take the train there. Lots of museums if that is your thing as well. It is an expensive city but I am sure you will do fine.

    NY City Wonderful Attractios

    I'd also take some restaurant recommendations. I just discovered Gordon Ramsay has a restaurant in New York City... I may have to try that. If I can afford it that is. I also heard Artichoke Pizza is good. We definitely want to eat some good NY pizza. We will really only have about 2 days in the city, a little less actually. A trip to Coney Island is probably out of the question, but that sounds fun! I'm willing to splurge a little, but I've got to keep things as cheap as I can for the most part, times are tough.

    You need to go to Lombardi's Pizza then. It's not considered one of the best pizzerias for nothing. I like the pizza there but some friends who have gone there too were not big fans. Still, it has a great history and worth checking out definitely.

    Be sure to check the web sites of the museums you want to visit; many of them will have a free or "pay what you want" day every week. And ride the Staten Island Ferry; it's free and you can get some great pictures of Lady Liberty.

    the best things in the east coast are surprisingly free! You could go to Long Island and visit the Fire Island Beach or maybe Cape may on the Jersey Shore. Also, Central Park in the city is one of the most beautiful and unique parks in the world. You could stay in Super 8, La Quinta or a similar hotel where you could grab a deal for as low as $60 per night, with breakfast included. Hope this helps!

    Try Motorino pizza in the East Village, or Rosario's on the lower east side. There is also Minca Ramen in the East Village, not as popular as Momofuku but just as good, and for a fraction of the price. There is also the Doughnut Plant on Grand St in the Lower East Side that is a personal favorite. If you are going to the MOMA, may I suggest splurging at the Modern instead of the Gordon Ramsey place. Shake Shack in Madison Square Park is fun, and if you are still there on a Sunday, there is a Mexican food truck along 14th St, between 8th and 9th avenue. It stand right in front of a church and has the best tacos and gorditas.

    I agree with you Motorino pizza in the East Village is one of the best food to have here, their recipe and baking are always my favorite.

    It can be a different kind of experience because usually we do not get to experience such things when all goes certain we can take care of a lot , for me niagara falls night view is decent much and it helps for sure.

    New York is a place that could be explored in any of the month of year. But if you are planning to go there in july then it would be a good time to go there. I also visited there in july last year and enjoyed Bastille Day's celebrations and you could also took part in summer concerts as well. I am now going to have another quick new york 1 day tour with my friends and i am really excited about it.
