Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of the city life by going to Ponquogue Beach and Gateway National Recreation. For shopping fun, head to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets or Alex Ferrone Gallery. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue), Amazing Olive (in Port Jefferson) and William Floyd Estate (in Mastic Beach). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Cupsogue Beach County Park, get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue, explore the world behind art at Frick Collection, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market.
