Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Popular historic sites such as Gateway National Recreation and The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine are in your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Fifth Avenue and 9/11 Memorial. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Belmar Beach (in Belmar), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, wander the streets of Times Square, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and get engrossed in the history at Ellis Island.
