Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of the city life by going to Gateway National Recreation and Jenkinson's Boardwalk. Do some cultural sightseeing at Tenement Museum and Greenwich Village. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Woodbury Common Premium Outlets in Central Valley, approximately 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Chapel and take in the spiritual surroundings of The Met Cloisters.
