Be Part of the Studio Audience It's fun—and free—to attend the tapings of popular television shows filmed in New York City. You get to see huge stars up close, and if you're lucky, your friends at home might even see you on TV. The wait for tickets is often long, so it's best to write in for them far in advance. Still, many shows have standby options if you're willing to wait in line. See below for the addresses, schedules and other important info for NYC-based TV shows.
The Transit Museum is awesome! $7 for adults. It is housed in an old station -- I almost waked by the entrance because to enter it you go downstairs just like a regular station. My favorite part was the old trains, you can go on them and see the old seats, maps. etc. Definitely worth checking out.
