Everyone knows about the most famous attractions in New York City. Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Times Square, Central Park etc. All great places, all well worth visiting.

For example, take the Bronx Zoo. Quite a place. In fact it's the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States. You thought it was San Diego didn't you? 265 acres. 6000 animals.

Less than $10. A bargain no matter how you do the math. If the zoo isn't cultural enough for you, you can always check out the Japan society. The closest you can get to Japan without crossing the ocean. Lectures, musical performances,exibitions, the works.

For some culture a little closer to home how about the Jewish Museum. Four thousand years of Jewish art and other highbrow stuff for not much more than lunch at one of New York's famous delicatasens.
