Students in New York

New York is home to Columbia University, New York University, Fordham University, the City College of New York, and more. With other colleges scattered throughout the five boroughs, and a huge population of public and private high-schoolers, it's no wonder the city is rife with student discounts. Wherever you go, especially museums, sightseeing attractions, and performances, identify yourself as a student and ask if a discount is available, but be prepared to show your ID.

ArtsConnection Teen Programs/High 5 Tickets to the Arts is a great program for teens 13 and 18 (or anyone in middle or high school). Tickets to a wide variety of performances (though only rarely Broadway shows) and museum passes are sold for $5 online or by phone. And, for every student ticket, an adult can get a $5 ticket, too. Check the website to find out about upcoming events and offerings.
