Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
We've included these beaches for you: Bay Head Beach and Kowawese Unique Area at Plum Point. Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Met Cloisters capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Mantoloking Beach (in Mantoloking), Woodbury Common Premium Outlets (in Central Valley) and Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum (in Hyde Park). There's lots more to do: get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, stroll through Central Park, admire the masterpieces at Frick Collection, and examine the collection at New York Public Library.
