Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island capture your imagination. Step out of the city life by going to Gateway National Recreation and Bayard Cutting Arboretum. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Wolf Conservation Center (in South Salem), Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). On the 7th (Sat), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and look for all kinds of wild species at Teatown Lake Reservation.
