Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Golden Fish Gallery and DM Weil Gallery. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: St Mary's Episcopal Church (in Cold Spring), Adams Fairacre Farms (in Wappingers Falls) and Hudson Beach Glass (in Beacon). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, take in the exciting artwork at The Shawnee Gallery, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, and get a taste of the local shopping with SteelStacks.
