Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and American Museum of Natural History. Visit 8th Ave Jetty and Cupsogue Beach County Park for some beach relaxation. Venture out of the city with trips to Lido Beach (in Lido Beach), Point Lookout Beach (in Point Lookout) and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, visit Times Square, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and explore the landscape on two wheels at East River Waterfront Esplanade.

To find where to stay, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the New York City itinerary builder tool.
