While there are tons of free NYC activities, even penny pinchers like us have to admit that some of the city’s best attractions come with a price tag.

Ah, summer in New York. A magical time when the one percent retire to the Hamptons and the rest of us get to eat at their favorite dining establishments on the cheap during Restaurant Week. Prepare your bellies, because starting on July 21 dozens of kitchens will be offering three-course, prix-fixe feasts for a mere $25 at lunch and $38 for dinner. Don’t forget to start dialing (or typing) when reservations open on July 9.DETAILS: $25 for lunch, $38 for dinner; restaurants throughout the city; nycgo.com/restaurantweek
Get some fresh air — and some culture — at opening night of the Bard’s best daddy-issue drama with the title role played by Tony-award winning actor (and everybody’s favorite 1990s TV alien) John Lithgow. If the heat’s not too oppressive you can wait in line for free tickets; otherwise, let NewYork.com help you guarantee a seat while supporting the Public Theater at the same time.
DETAILS: 8pm; $189.50 for reserved seat (get tickets!); free by lottery or waiting in line from the early morning); middle of the park, Central Park at 80th St.
You can still expect elaborate sets, an army of backup dancers and skin-showing costumes to make John Mayer cry.
DETAILS: 7pm; from $62.65; 620 Atlantic Ave.; barclayscenter.com The view from Top of the Rock
Want to see the Empire State Building, Central Park and the Chrysler Building after a trip that takes less than 60 seconds? Climb 70 stories (850 feet) in a glass-ceilinged elevator to the peak of this 1933 skyscraper and take in panoramic views of the city from an open-air deck designed to look like an ocean liner. For an extra dose of romance, go in the evening to watch the sun descending over Manhattan.
DETAILS: 8am-12am (last elevator at 11pm); $24.50 for adults (get tickets!); 30 Rockefeller Plaza
If you still find yourself shouting Gooooooooooool! at the office two weeks after the World Cup has ended, feed your football fever by watching two top European soccer teams kick it out at Yankee Stadium when English Premier League champs Manchester City take on Luis Suarez and Liverpool. Yes, this Euro “football” stuff is fun – just be sure to drink a Bud at the ballpark to remind yourself that you’re still in America.
DETAILS: 7pm; from $60.25; 1 East 161st St.; ticketmaster.com
We can’t think of a more appropriate place to watch one of the greatest submarine movies of all time than aboard the flight deck of a massive World War II aircraft carrier-turned-museum moored on the mighty Hudson River. It’s all free, so pack a picnic, take in the water views and revel in Sean Connery’s refusal to change his Scottish accent even when playing a Russian naval captain.
DETAILS: Doors at 7:30pm; free; Pier 86, W. 46th St. and 12th Ave.; intrepidmuseum.org
