Purchase An NYC Explorer Pass Bundle
From Redditor u/boothismanbooooo:
Anything that recommends one of those City Passes or NYC Explorer Passes that bundle a bunch of admissions together for one price.
I was also around when those hucksters were charging people for tickets to the Staten Island Ferry. I'm considering resurrecting that racket again if anyone is interested.

"Just take a cab everywhere, it's easier than the subway." Not necessarily, and also you're gonna pay a sh*t-ton more that way.

Go Visit The Far Outer-Boroughs
From Redditor u/HeyItsMau:
Generally, I think it's silly to suggest going to the far outer-boroughs unless someone has a very specific interest in something worth their while. Why would most tourists want to "See how real New Yorkers live"?
