Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or Chelsea Market. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Times Square and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Take a break from New York City with a short trip to Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook, about 40 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: explore the galleries of 9/11 Memorial, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park.
