Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from the city and head to Narwhal Yacht Charters and Jones Beach State Park. Head to Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Marketfor plenty of shopping. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Ocean Grove Beach (in Ocean Grove) and Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, go for a walk through Central Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.
