Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Sands Point Preserve and 9/11 Memorial will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore and learn at The Met Cloisters and Ground Zero Museum Workshop. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook, approximately 38 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: admire all the interesting features of Washington Square Park, take a memorable tour with Tours, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and take a stroll through Greenwich Village.
