Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Gateway National Recreation and 9/11 Memorial. Hamilton Grange National Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel will appeal to history buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, don't miss a visit to Empire State Building, take a stroll through Times Square, and browse the exhibits of Ellis Island.
