Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get outdoors at Gateway National Recreation and Fire Island National Seashore. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Central Park Zoo, and appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument.
