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 Speed Boats Tours. Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Venture out of the city with trips to Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson) and Joel L. Lefkowitz Park at West Meadow Beach (in Stony Brook). The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take a stroll through Times Square, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and head outdoors with West Side Community Garden.
