Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fifth Avenue and Times Square. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at DM Weil Gallery and West Village. Venture out of the city with trips to Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson), Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and 8th Ave Jetty (in Asbury Park). And it doesn't end there: browse the exhibits of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
