Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Gateway National Recreation and 9/11 Memorial are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get in touch with nature at Quogue Wildlife Refuge and Cattus Island County Park. Change things up with a short trip to Bushkill Falls in Bushkill (about 1h 40 min away). There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, and explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

To see photos, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our New York City route maker .

Expect a daytime high around 86°F in July, and nighttime lows around 72°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
