Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Housing Works Used Book Cafefor plenty of shopping. Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Ocean Grove Beach (in Ocean Grove), Belmar Beach (in Belmar) and Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of 9/11 Memorial, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, and take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building.
