Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some historical perspective at 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Get some cultural insight at Fifth Avenue and Franklin Hill Vineyards. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Worthington State Forest (in Columbia), Pocono Environmental Education Center (in Dingmans Ferry) and Jacobsburg State Park (in Nazareth). It doesn't end there: wander the streets of Times Square and hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market.
