Five Free Things to Do in Brooklyn this Fall

No money? No problem.


Just because you're strapped for cash doesn't mean you can't live the good life. Below find five free things guaranteed to keep you entertained this fall in Brooklyn.

1. Listen to free live music at BAM.

Every Friday and Saturday night, BAM's "BAMcafé" hosts free live music and dance parties. This fall's line-up includes acts like GAME Rebellion, "JEWMONGOUS," the Skye Steele Quartet, and more. Doors open at 8pm, and you can buy drinks at the event. BAM is located at 30 Lafayette Avenue.

2. Catch a free outdoor movie at Habana Outpost.

It's Sunday evening, and you want the weekend to keep on going on? Make your way to Fort Greene's Habana Outpost, where, through October 25, you'll be able to order a frozen mojito and enjoy classics like "Batman" and "City of God" on the big screen. Movies start at 8pm; Habana Outpost is located at 757 Fulton Street.

3. Take a ride... to Governor's Island.

On Saturdays and Sundays, a free ferry runs between DUMBO's Fulton Ferry Landing and Governor's Island. It's a quick ride with great rewards on the other side. Pack a picnic, take your bike, and enjoy the wonderful, historic park that Governor's Island has become. The Island will be open through October 11.

4. Up your beer I.Q.

The Brooklyn Brewery gives free tours every Saturday: Learn about the borough's brewing past, then spend the afternoon sipping lager in the Brewery's tasting room. Tours take place on Saturdays at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, and 4pm. The Brewery is located at 79 North 11th Street.

5. Hit up a free Brooklyn museum.

Brooklyn museums are some of the best in the city, and luckily, many of them, like the Coney Island Museum (1208 Surf Avenue), the Kurdish Library (345 Park Place), and Lefferts Historic House (Prospect Park) are always free. Several other institutions offer free admission on specified days.
