New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit 9/11 Memorial and Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine for their historical value. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook--about 40 minutes away. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Chapel, and make a trip to Empire State Building.
