Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to The Music Man Singing Ice Cream Shoppe and Hudson Beach Glassfor some retail therapy. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Alex Ferrone Gallery and Woodbury Common Premium Outlets. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: St. Catharine Catholic Church (in Spring Lake), Coffee Pot Cellars Tasting Room (in Cutchogue) and Barnacle Bills Amusements (in Ortley Beach). There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at DM Weil Gallery, do a tasting at Laurel Lake Vineyard, shop like a local with The Shawnee Gallery, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market.
