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 find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Sandy Hook (Gunnison Beach & Gateway National Recreation). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Long Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, go for a walk through Central Park, and look for gifts at Kalustyan's.
