Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or West Village. Discover out-of-the-way places like Quogue Wildlife Refuge and Gateway National Recreation. Venture out of the city with trips to The Amazing Olive (in Port Jefferson) and Cupsogue Beach County Park (in Westhampton Beach). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, steep yourself in history at 9/11 Memorial, browse the eclectic array of goods at Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market, and stop by Kalustyan's.
