Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets and Chelsea Market. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at New York Public Library and Ground Zero Museum Workshop. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Kowawese Unique Area at Plum Point (in New Windsor), Rockaway Beach (in Far Rockaway) and Allenhurst Beach Club (in Allenhurst). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, browse the exhibits of The Met Cloisters, and pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial.
