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 Fire Island National Seashore and Teatown Lake Reservation. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Times Square, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, go for a walk through Central Park, and contemplate the long history of Federal Hall.
