Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some cultural insight at Gateway National Recreation and American Museum of Natural History. Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh) and Teatown Lake Reservation (in Ossining). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, tour the water at your own pace with Narwhal Yacht Charters, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and wander the streets of Fifth Avenue.
