Free Boat rides are available all around town (NYC is an island at the end of the day). At the Downtown Boathouse, residents can cruise the city at three different locations on the Hudson. At the North River Lobster Company, have a seafood dinner and cruise along the river for 45 minutes until the boat docks again. You can stay on for as long as you’d like as long as you keep buying items.
Many free movies are playing city-wide this summer including Ghostbusts, The Blues Brothers, Raging Bull, Airplane, Big Hero 6, and Mallrats (Jay and Silent Bob).
More into the theater scene than the movie crowd? A few off Broadway theaters are playing great shows all the time. Many of which hire volunteer ushers to scan tickets and seat lost patrons. If you should be so inclined to become a usher, you get a free show out of it.
On August 21st, in Central Park there will be a free show from 5 Seconds to Summer and will be broadcast live on Good Morning America at 7am. Fox & Friends also joins the free concert providers with their Summer Concert Series. Scotty McCreery, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Alice Cooper will all be performing this year.
Free bikes are available for rides too if you feel like heading over to Governors Island. There Blazing Saddles rents bikes for free for an hour. The catch is, it’s only offered on weekdays between 10am and noon.
