So I promise I have some really good tips and tricks for you not go bankrupt during your time at N Y U. So first I want to talk about museums. If you're really into museums like I am like, I know I utilized a lot of these perks during my first year on and why you. So if you're really into museums, this is gonna be really helpful. I have a list here of all of the museums that you can go to for free if you bring your and my used to 90 card, and those are e way, and that's it. My favorite is the Whitney, because their rooftop is really cool to take pictures at, and they have a cafe on there. It's really, really beautiful, and you can't eat at the restaurants of the cafes at the Whitney for free. You can definitely gain entry into the museum for free. So. The most famous museum in New York City is the Metropolitan Museum of Art, otherwise known as the Mets, and that museum. You can't get in for free at, but that's okay, sort of pay what you will situations. You can go when you can pay full asking price, or you can pay a dollar. There are some things that and why you helps you out with so you can get discounted prices. It includes Ah, lot of restaurants and cafes down MacDougal Street, a few key places you could get discounts in. You can get 10% off public art studios, and that's really cool. It's like one of my favorite stores, so getting that 10% off is really helpful, and some other places air just like the Garden of Eden marketplace. There's a pie, a dog, and then there's a madman espresso on University Place, which is really good, but my favorite places that you could get discounts at overall our Bagel Bob's. It's on university, and not only are the staff, they're like the friendliest people in the world, but you also get a discount if you bring your student, I D. But keep in mind you can't use a credit card there so you can only bring cash and get a discount. Bagel Bob's is definitely a really good option. When you go to N Y u, you get a discounted Amazon prime subscription and a discounted it's modified subscription. Like if you have a dot edu email, you can get a subscription for half price, which is super helpful because, you know, to pay like 12 99 month may not seem like a big deal until a year has gone by and you're like, Where's all this money going? So think about it. I got to New York City and they were trying to make me pay, like, $1920 to go see a random movie, and I wasn't you know that wasn't gonna fly with me so and why you students can get discounted movie tickets somewhere around, I think, usually around, like $10 from the box office for the Regal Cinemas, AMC City Cinemas, the Angelica I know you can use them for. Apparently and why you cells discounted tickets for Six Flags, and I didn't know that. I mean, personally, roller coasters aren't really my thing, but if they are your thing, totally take advantage of that. The N Y U box office provides a discount finder, which is awesome. They actually compiled discount sites for you to utilize. You can just go to the N Y u box office website, and they have a compiled list of all of the discounted sites that you can use. Like I know for Broadway shows they have a list of, like today tickets and all this other stuff, so it's really cool. This might be with every university, I'm not sure, but and why you offers free counseling? It's definitely up to an extent, but there are walking hours and you can go and talk to a therapist and it's totally free. This is definitely my favorite category because there will always be some sort of group or club or association that wants you to come and eat their free food and engage in their free activity. I would hear about stuff like this all the time, and sometimes they even host their events at really cool locations like art galleries. The way to know about them really The way to like stay in the know is to one. Read your emails because I know Steinhardt sends out e mails that once a day about events going on that you could go to for free and eat food for free. Look around your residence hall building because every single residence hall has posters everywhere, advertising for events or discounted Broadway show tickets are raisel sort of round up their hall or anyone in the building who wants to go to go see a Broadway show for a discounted price, so that, I think, is really helpful as well. This is at most colleges, but I also really want to stress, because some people forget definitely utilize the writing center. You have people there who will help you do your homework for free, and I mean, don't get me wrong. They will literally help you with your homework for free. Another thing I want to stress and why you is really good at providing amenities for their students. Uh, let's go take a picnic in Washington Square Park or take a 20 minute walk to sightsee at the Hudson Yards in Chelsea or go to the high line also something really random. Use your dining dollars at places like the Dunkin Donuts in Union Square or Peet's Coffee and Kimmel, because that's really helpful. There's also a really helpful article from N Y u Local called 11 and Y You hacks Every student should try before they Graduate By Laura Rothenberg It's from 2014 so it's a little dated. So you're not spending an arm and a leg when you don't really need thio at New York University.
