Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

The Staten Island Ferry: New York's Best Bar

If you're looking for a cheap beer and great views, go no farther north than Water Street. The Staten Island Ferry not only provides a great view of Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty, they also offer (if I remember correctly after pounding about 5 of them) Coors tall boys for $3, and Corona bottles for about $4. Beat that LES! Not to mention that the ride itself is free and about a half hour each way - the perfect amount of time to blur your vision enough to make Staten Island seem inviting. Hint: take all tourists here! They will love it.

Take the R, W to Whitehall Street, 1,9 to South Ferry, 4,5 to Bowling Green, or J,M,Z to Broad Street.
