Natella Vaidman, Publisher
Club Free Time was born from the enthusiasm of a new New Yorker for her adopted city. Publisher Natella Vaidman was amazed at the incredible variety and quality of the City's free(!) entertainment and education offerings, and wanted to share her findings with others. It was started back in 1987 as a six-page monthly newsletter called 'Free Time.' In that pre-Internet era it grew fast from 6 pages to 48 pages. www.clubfreetime.com went online in March of 2001.
Our website attracts people who have a zest for life and for New York culture. We all know that 'best things in life are free,' one can definitely apply it to New York's cultural life.
Club Free Time has been the subject of a column in the New York Times Metro Matters, (still under the name of 'Free Time'), was featured on 'Good Morning New York' (FOX 5) and in Wall Street Journal (11/24/2016), and has been reffered to in numerous guidebooks about NYC like 'Let's Go New York', 'The Newcomer's Handbook to NYC', and 'New York's Best Kept Secrets'. In addition, Ms. Vaidman has appeared on numerous radio programs on WABC, WOR, WNEW, WBLI, and others.
