And there are plenty of easy ways you can save money.

For example, if you frequently take the subway, buying a 30-day unlimited ride pass can save you considerable cash over the pay-per-ride option.

And, instead of dropping $4 on coffee on your way to work each morning, you can brew your own at home before heading out the door.

And, if you're looking for some fun, check the web for free events — concerts, movies, plays, museums, etc. — around the city.
