Gallery: 6 Green (and Free) Summer Things to Do in NYC!


We're not trying to knock those $50 scavenger hunt tours that take you on a wild goose chase around the city (they're actually pretty darn fun), but who says you can't get a group of pals together on a summer afternoon and DIY your own hunt? The trick is to center your list of things to search for around a theme - the NYC Cow Parade (those brightly painted bovines you see all around town) is a great one - and run with it. Split people into teams and have them take cell phone pics of each found target as proof. And there's no reason the things on your list need to be established landmarks. Sending people of to track down as many green walls or bald men with mustaches as they can is just as gratifying (if not more).

    Your museum information is a bit out of date: The Forbes Gallery sold off their Faberge eggs years ago – back to Russian billionaires I understand, and the Cooper Hewitt museum is closed until October 2011.
