For those that have not been vaccinated yet, you can now get free tickets to some of NYC’s most popular attractions if you receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Pssst…Have fun with our NYC Spring Bucket List: 30 Family-Friendly Things to do in Spring 2021!
After a drop in vaccination rates, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday, May 10, that they will be giving free tickets to some of New York City’s greatest attractions! “Anyone who has not been vaccinated, now is the time. We want to make it easier and we want to make it fun and we want to give you some incentives,” he said.
Some of these attractions include the NYC Aquarium, NY Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Bronx Zoo, Public Theater Membership, Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Cyclones, New York City Football Club, NYC Ferry, and more to come!
Just today, Citi Bike NYC was added to the list of perks, offering two free weeks when you get vaccinated. Along with more organizations coming together to get NYC vaccinated, the Brooklyn Nets are becoming a mobile vaccine site outside of Barclays Center. When getting vaccinated at this location, you can enter their lottery for a chance to win playoff tickets!
In addition to free tickets to NYC attractions, Shake Shack will be giving out free fries when you order a burger or chicken sandwich at NYC locations. All you have to do is show your valid vaccine card or Excelsior Pass. The deal will be offered until June 12.
