Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Escape the urban bustle at Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge and Goodale Farms. For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or Golden Fish Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Peconic River Herb Farm (in Calverton), Upper Delaware River (in Narrowsburg) and Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue). There's much more to do: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, go for a walk through Central Park, wander the streets of Times Square, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

To see other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the New York City trip itinerary maker .
