Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Strand Bookstore. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook), Eagle Rock Reservation (in West Orange) and Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River). And it doesn't end there: learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Trinity Church, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument.
