Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gateway National Recreation and St. Paul's Chapel. Relax by the water at Ponquogue Beach and Fire Island National Seashore. Venture out of the city with trips to Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Belmar Beach (in Belmar) and Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach). The adventure continues: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, make a trip to Times Square, choose your vessel at Narwhal Yacht Charters, and get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue.

For maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the New York City online visit planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 71°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
