Last night I went to "see" Ben Folds at the Central Park SummerStage. The "see" is in quotes as I never actually laid my eyes on Mr. Folds. This is because I did as hundreds do every night there is a show here: I went around back and listened to the show for free. I didn't have $40 to drop to see Ben and Aimee Mann play so I sat on the ground chatting with other fans as I listened.

This is one of my favorite tricks here in NYC -- one which I have not implemented enough. Too bad the only show remaining in the season is Paul van Dyk. Not really a fan.

If you know of any other cool NYC freebies let me know. I'd love to try them out.
