I mean CHEAP! I'm visiting New York for Mem. Day weekend and find myself reluctantly accepting the challenge of having less than $150 to spend in 5 days. I'll be spending most of my time downtown at a friend's (Mott/Prince), also visiting the Botanical Gardens and the MET.
I'm talking $8-10 meals interspersed with pizza slices and burritos. Is there anything worthwhile in any of those 3 areas or should I bring some jerky?
