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 Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co.. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Gateway National Recreation and 9/11 Memorial. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Teaneck Creek Conservancy (in Teaneck). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, explore the striking landscape of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
