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 Fire Island National Seashore and New York Harbor. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island will appeal to museum buffs. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Pleasantville to see Rockefeller State Park Preserve about 54 minutes away. There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Central Park Zoo, shop like a local with Fifth Avenue, and make a trip to Empire State Building.
