Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.

Take a break from New York City with a short trip to Rockaway Beach in Far Rockaway, about 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take a stroll through Washington Square Park, and go for a walk through Times Square.
