Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll get in some beach time at Gateway National Recreation and Belmar Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Narwhal Yacht Charters and Jones Beach State Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Ocean Grove Beach (in Ocean Grove) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Times Square, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and make a trip to Central Park.

In May, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 69°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
