Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've now added United Nations Headquarters to your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Roosevelt Island and Point Pleasant Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Ellis Island and Seaport District NYC. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum (in Norwalk), Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, look for gifts at FAO Schwarz, see the interesting displays at Tenement Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
