Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Marketfor plenty of shopping. Visit 9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel for their historical value. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Ocean Grove Beach (in Ocean Grove) and Belmar Beach (in Belmar). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Times Square and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
