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 Bronx Zoo and Central Park Zoo. Visit 9/11 Memorial and Gateway National Recreation for their historical value. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Patchogue to see Fire Island National Seashore about 1h 25 min away. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel.
