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 East River Waterfront Esplanade and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. 9/11 Memorial and Tiles For America will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Black Creek Preserve (in Esopus), Hook Mountain State Park (in Valley Cottage) and Wolf Conservation Center (in South Salem). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and make a trip to Central Park.

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in June, and nighttime lows around 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
