Manhattan Tourists: No Need To Pay To See The Lady Print

Adding a word to Frank Sinatra’s lyrics: New York, New York, it’s a helluva (costly) town! Many seniors wandering in Manhattan for the first time in decades are understandably shocked by the sky-high hotel, restaurant, taxi and other prices. Take heart! Some savings can happen if you plan visits by searching for on-line bargains and other deals.
