    Cooperstown/NYC Trip

    Soooo, next weekend I'm heading to Cooperstown to see Barry Larkin get inducted to the HOF and then am heading down to NYC for the rest of the week to visit my cousin and just hang out. He will be working during the day time and I'm looking for some advice on some cheap/free things to see and do in NYC.

    I've been to NYC before and have seen the Statue of Liberty & Central Park, so I'm kinda looking for things that might be a little more off the beaten path.

    Some things I already have planned:
    9/11 Memorial
    Brooklyn Brewery
    Yankees v. Red Sox (7/27)

    Would love some suggestions from y'all.

    McSorley's by Astor's Place. Oldest bar in NYC.

    Also, stand in line for Shake Shack. Best burgers, imo.

    Also, go to Battery Park and walk around. Then take the free ferry to Staten Island. Haha. I guess just PM me if you want some more suggestions. I've been there several times. I know we have some NYC folks on here too.

    Shake Shack is good. There's one at the Mets' ballpark if you want to catch a game, too.

    Re: Cooperstown/NYC Trip

    Yea, was thinking about maybe hitting up the day game on 7/25, although I have already been to Citi Field once and that time I actually got to see the Reds play (& win) which was awesome.

    Have done the Staten Island Ferry once, but that's a good idea and I may do it again. It gives you a great view of the city/Statue.

    Anyone else?

    Cheap eateries & cool beer bars are appreciated as well.
