Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook), Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue) and Grey Towers National Historic Site (in Milford). There's much more to do: stroll through Central Park, take a stroll through Times Square, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market.
