Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg today outlined dozens of
examples of free and low-cost, family-friendly cultural activities occurring
throughout the five boroughs in his weekly radio address on 1010 WINS News
Radio. With the ongoing national economic downturn, New Yorkers are taking
advantage of the many free holiday events, exhibits, performances and outdoor
activities offered by the City’s cultural institutions, parks and Business
Improvement Districts. In 2009, the Department of
Cultural Affairs invested more than
$570 million in programming, operations and infrastructure at more than 900 of
New York City’s cultural institutions. Mayor Bloomberg also encouraged New
Yorkers looking to take advantage of NYC Service
opportunities and find an organization that needs
"There is no place like New York City
during the holidays, and just because the economy is in a downturn doesn’t mean
New Yorkers have to stop taking advantage of all the things that make New York
the most vibrant city in the world,” said Mayor Bloomberg. "When the economy
went south, I told the City’s commissioners to find ways to do more with less and
to help New Yorkers do more with less. We’ve invested more than half a
billion dollars in the City cultural institutions this year alone, and there’s no better
time to take advantage of all the free and low-cost activities they have to
offer. At the same time, NYC Service is making New York City the easiest city in the
country in which to serve and helping drive our volunteer resources to the areas
where we need them most. The holidays are a great time to use your blank for
good. Get involved and stay involved.”
"New York City’s cultural organizations are committed to
welcoming all New Yorkers, in every neighborhood, especially during these tough
economic times,” said Cultural Affairs Commissioner Levin D. Levin. "There are
so many ways to participate - visit a museum, see a show, volunteer, or give a
membership or a subscription as a gift. Thanks to a strong public-private
partnership with the cultural sector, people don’t have to sacrifice what makes
living, working and playing in New York City so great.”
"From day hikes in the Bronx to stargazing in Central
Park, we’ve got you covered from morning until night with dozens of free or
low-cost activities happening right in your own backyard,” said Parks & Recreation
Commissioner Adrian Benepe. "This winter, New Yorkers can to stay
active by enjoying a skate at one of our seven ice rinks or jump-starting their
new year’s resolution to get fit by joining one of our 29 recreation centers
throughout the city.”
"There’s no better time to explore New York City than
during the holiday season,” said NYC & Company CEO George Fertitta.
"The City offers a wide range of activities for all ages and interests across
the five boroughs. We remind all New Yorkers that you don’t have to spend big
this holiday season in order to enjoy yourself with so many free and low-cost
holiday events going on.”
"There are a wide variety of holiday events in our
neighborhoods,” said Small Business
Commissioner Robert W. Walsh.
"Local organizations across the city are organizing family-oriented activities
such as tree lighting ceremonies, outdoor musical performances and historical
