Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of the city life by going to Bronx Zoo and East River Waterfront Esplanade. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Great Neck Steppingstone Park (in Great Neck), Joel L. Lefkowitz Park at West Meadow Beach (in Stony Brook) and Rockaway Beach (in Far Rockaway). There's still lots to do: walk around Central Park, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, and take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building.
