Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Sam's Point Preserve. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: 8th Ave Jetty (in Asbury Park), Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve (in Milford) and Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge (in Wallkill). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, look for all kinds of wild species at Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center, and pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial.

Plan a trip to New York City easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
