About Us

Natella Vaidman

Natella Vaidman, Publisher

Club Free Time provides the following services to the members:
  • information about free cultural events, i.e. free concerts, free theater performances, free tours, free poetry readings, free talks/lectures, gallery openings, free movies, etc. in New York City (Manhattan mostly)

  • an opportunity to reserve complimentary tickets to events which are not free at all: off-Broadway (and sometimes Broadway) shows, classical music concerts, jazz and dance performances, etc
Please keep in mind that you can really see what we offer only after you become a member and login, as the complimentary ticket offerings can not be made public.

A Bit of History

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'. The first issue was mailed out to 6 subscribers; yep - 6! In that pre-Internet era it grew from 6 pages to 48 pages and from 6 subscribers to 3,500 subscribers. The membership growth was mostly the result of the word of mouth. www.clubfreetime.com went online in March of 2001.

We now have over 16,000 members who use our services day in, day out.  All the reviews in our REVIEWS section are real notes from real people; none of those reviews have been solicited in any way or form.

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.

In the Press

Club Free Time 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'.  It has been the subject of a column in the New York Times Metro Matters (still under the name of 'Free Time', 12/21/1996), was featured on 'Good Morning New York' (FOX 5), in Wall Street Journal (11/24/2016), and in Crain's New York Business (08/20/2017).

We are still a 'New York's Best Kept Secret': you will not see Club Free Time advertising itself anywhere; we rely on the word of mouth to grow. We are very gratefull to our members for spreading the word!
