Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visiting East River Waterfront Esplanade and Bronx Zoo will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Fifth Avenue and 9/11 Memorial. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Schunnemunk State Park (in New Windsor), DM Weil Gallery (in New Paltz) and Rockland Lake State Park (in Valley Cottage). There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, steep yourself in history at Ellis Island, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Manhattan Waterfront Greenway.
