This is the first in a series of free stuff to do in Manhattan. I will make a note if they are not appropriate for kids. Not that I have kids, but I think I can judge whether something is safe enough. I just won’t vouch as to whether your kid will like it or not.
If you’re into fashion, look no further than the Museum at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology), located at 7th Avenue at 27th St on the West Side of the city.
This museum’s tagline is it’s The Most Fashionable Museum in New York City. I say they should add the words “That’s Free”, but whatever.
The current exhibition is called Force of Nature and it examines how the beauty and complexity of the natural world have inspired fashion designers for centuries. There are old pieces from the 1800s as well as pieces up to the present.
Note above: A suit made of Neoprene, handy for when the seas rise.
It’s interesting if you like fashion, and takes less than an hour. And HEY, It’s free! You can’t beat that in Manhattan!
Afterwards, stroll over to the High Line which is free, too!
Exhibitions change, so check the website for details. It’s closed Sundays, Mondays and some holidays.
