With over 23,000 restaurants and 2000+ bars, it’s no wonder New York has the reputation as the city that never sleeps! Take your pick of Manhattan hot spots – from the bright lights of Broadway and Times Square to the hip enclaves of the Meat Packers District, Hell's Kitchen, Tribecca, Harlem and the Lower East Side. Or head over to the bustling boroughs of Queens or Brooklyn for an alternative view of New York living. Here are some of the top picks Mozo’s money savvy travellers recommend you check out in the Big Apple with only a ‘Jackson’ ($20) in your wallet.

If the Yankees are playing when you’re in New York, you can’t get better value for your $20 than heading out to the Bronx and watching the game live at Yankee Stadium. You’ll need to cough up about $15 for sitting in the bleachers for a seat with an obstructed view but who needs to see A-Rod when you’ve got Yankee fans to keep you entertained’ A hot dog and beer will set you back around $10 (taking you over the budgeted $20) but it’s well worth it for the all-American ballpark experience.Author: Roy Milligan
One of my all time favourite bars in New York! Lucky Strike has the perfect location for grabbing a Cosmo or Martini with friends after a shopping escapade in SOHO. Those fresh, delicious cocktails will come for under $20 (minus the cost of shopping of course!)
