Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of the city life by going to Gateway National Recreation and Jones Beach State Park. Popular historic sites such as 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial are in your itinerary. Step out of New York City to go to Bronx and see Bronx Zoo, which is approximately 42 minutes away. There's much more to do: browse the exhibits of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art, take an in-depth tour of Ellis Island, and make a trip to Fifth Avenue.
