Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visiting Gateway National Recreation and Teatown Lake Reservation will get you outdoors. Popular historic sites such as 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River), Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue) and Sands Point Preserve (in Port Washington). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, see the interesting displays at Tenement Museum, take an in-depth tour of Ellis Island, and don't miss a visit to Statue of Liberty National Monument.
