Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Fire Island National Seashore and Gateway National Recreation. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Gunnison Beach (in Sandy Hook) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). The adventure continues: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, enjoy breathtaking views from Top of the Rock Observation Deck, and make a trip to Empire State Building.
