Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to Sam's Point Preserve and Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge. Step out of the city life by going to Bushkill Falls and Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue), Worthington State Forest (in Columbia) and Ice Caves and Verkeerderkill Falls Trail Hike (in Cragsmoor). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Quogue Wildlife Refuge, admire the majestic nature at Minnewaska State Park Preserve, relax in the rural setting at Peconic River Herb Farm, and hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market.
