Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Independence National Historical Park and Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum will appeal to history buffs. Appreciate the collections at New York Public Library and Eastern State Penitentiary. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Woodbury Common Premium Outlets (in Central Valley), Ansonia Nature & Recreation Center (in Ansonia) and Hyde Park (Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt & Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site). Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic scenery at Bushkill Falls, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, identify plant and animal life at Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge, and explore the world behind art at Frick Collection.
