Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get outdoors at Point Lookout Beach and Bronx Zoo. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Ocean Grove to see Ocean Grove Beach about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Times Square, race across the water with a speed boat tour, take in the views from Brooklyn Bridge, and shop like a local with Fifth Avenue.
