89th And Broke

I'm a young professional living in Astoria (formerly of Williamsburg, the UES and Murray Hill - I move a lot!). I'm always looking for something fun to do or the best place to grab a drink and dinner at an affordable price around the city. Have a suggestion? Email me at Laura AT 89thandbroke DOT com.

About Laura, The Blogger

The Basics
Name: Laura
Location: Astoria
Who to bring: Anyone who is fun and can hold a decent conversation.
Price: 27 years old and when it comes to meals, I like to spend under $10.
Overall:  I’d like to think I’m at the top.  5 stars.

I’ll be honest – I’m the type of person who if you compliment something I’m wearing, I’ll be quick to say how much I paid and where I got it.  There’s nothing I enjoy more than sharing deals and saving money.

My best deal to date has to be a long brown puffy winter jacket, purchased at an outlet in Westbrook, Connecticut.  Total cost was $6.  It was marked down from $7.

While I love great shopping deals, living in NYC has deepened my appreciation for food and different cuisines that I normally would not have tried back at home.  Although NYC can be expensive, within my first few weeks of moving to the city, I attended a few free food/drink events and learned that you can dine for free in NYC.  Combine my love for deals and my love for a great meal, and you have 89thandbroke.com.
