Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've added One World Observatory, Classic Harbor Line, Wollman Rink, and other attractions to your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. There's much more to do: enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, admire the landmark architecture of Rockefeller Center, get great views at Top of the Rock, and appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial.

Brooklyn

— 2 nights

Borough of Trees

Though it may be less popular or touristy than its big brother Manhattan, Brooklyn boasts of one of the largest and hippest art districts in the United States.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Sat): take in nature's colorful creations at Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park, contemplate the long history of Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, explore the world behind art at The Heckscher Museum of Art, steep yourself in history at Old Bethpage Village Restoration, then examine the collection at Cradle of Aviation Museum, and finally explore the engaging exhibits at Long Island Children's Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: take a stroll through Bushwick Collective Street Art, walk around Flushing Meadows Corona Park, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Bronx Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Old Westbury Gardens, then buy something for everyone on your list at Roosevelt Field, and finally see what you can catch with Captain Lou Fleet.
