Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Gateway National Recreation and Ellis Island are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit 9/11 Memorial and Trinity Church for their historical value. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Gunnison Beach (in Sandy Hook), Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays) and Belmar Beach (in Belmar). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, go for a walk through Central Park, and enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building.
