A lot of people have ask me how much money can you spend in NYC on a regular day
well all depends of what you are doing or where are you going, but for today’s blog we will do a regular day. A frugal and careful but still want to have fun kind of day.
On a normal day hanging out with friends will start with taking the subway to move around the city , that would cost around $10.00 with a metro card
after that one of my friends suggest to go bowling at Bowlmor at Chelsea piers what a fun place that is, nothing extraordinary, possibly there are other places that are not as pricey as that one. But that’s what you do when you have a group of friends, it was around $12 each person plus $6 rental shoes, for one game. after bowling we went out to eat and I think that’s the tricky part where you eat, NYC have so many delicious options of course we are not talking fast food here which it can be more cheap, So we decided to go to Williamsburg, Brooklyn if you are visiting New York that’s one stop you need to make, you can find there great restaurants, bars, eclectic shops and so much nightlife attractions, its such a hipster place, I personally like it a lot. one of my go to places to eat is Sea – a Thai restaurant food is great and price wise is very affordable. So I start my dinner with an entrée I order their famous southwestern soup $5.50 and my main course I had Thai noodles with seafood $13.00 and to drink I just order tap water. (Funny thing I discover sometimes drinks are more expensive than food, not only at Sea but pretty much everywhere in NYC) After dinner we went for dessert, we went to this place I saw good reviews about it’s called “Martha’s bakery” also in Williamsburg Brooklyn. lets just day the place is really, really pricey. I had there the Berry Napoleon a tiny slice was $7.00 with a cup of hot chocolate $5.50 ((I have a sweet tooth)) I was even more surprise to find out is that is a dollar more expensive to eat at the place than to take it to go. I don’t think I will be going very often there.
There you go a total normal day in the city cost me $59.OO
