I am totally broke and, since I only get paid once a month (you can't imagine...) it is an extra special struggle this month to do things without spending money.
On Thursday, Pauline and I bought cheap Indian street food, a couple of beers and rode the Staten Island Ferry for a few hours. The Ferry is completely and utterly free, has an awesome view, and is some mighty fine people watching.
Despite spraining my arm on my roller skates last night, Tom and I decided to take a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and head to the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is such a great experience - beautiful view and humbling architecture. Price of admission: $0. Two scoops of delicious ice cream: $5.
Anyway, I'm relatively poor right now but New York can make you forget about that sometimes if you know where to look.
