Morgan's "Arts and Culture Employee Benefits Program" designed to give employees the best (and least expensive) access to cultural happenings all over the city.
See Shakespeare in Central Park for free each summer, at the Delacorte Theater (as long as you have time to wait in line for a ticket). In fact, Central Park has dozens of things going on all the time - free concerts, ice skating in the winter, free opera in the summer, concerts - and there's always a game of Frisbee going on. Then there's the zoo - right inside the park!
Brooklyn's Prospect Park, like Central Park, was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux. The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and the Brooklyn Museum are on its edge, and both are worth a visit.
