Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do your shopping at Statue of Liberty National Monument and Brooklyn Bridge. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Beach Haus Brewery (in Belmar), East Jersey Old Town Village (in Piscataway) and Historic Bolton Mansion (in Levittown). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to 9/11 Memorial, sample the tasty concoctions at Third State Brewery, wander the streets of SoHo, and shop like a local with Seaport District NYC.
