Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial will appeal to museum buffs. Your inner history buff will appreciate Ellis Island and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Roosevelt Park (in Edison), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Trailside Nature & Science Center (in Mountainside). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, go for a walk through Central Park, admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and look for all kinds of wild species at Demarest Nature Center.
