(But wait! If you promise to act on it soon, we're gonna give you another tip: Governors Island [see the site for details]. It's only open during the summer and it's closed Monday and Tuesday, but the ferry and all tours are a big capital free. If you go on Saturday or Sunday, you can amble at will all over the island, the last memento of a New York City that no longer exists -- no congested sidewalks, no noise, and nothing blocking the cool water views.)
For anyone who doesn't live in NYC, the basic idea works just as well. Surf on over to the web site of your city's visitors bureau to pore through the low- and no-cost options on offer.
