Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get outdoors at Quogue Wildlife Refuge and Gateway National Recreation. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and St. Paul's Chapel. The adventure continues: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, examine the collection at 9/11 Memorial, and admire the landmark architecture of Federal Hall.
