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 St. Patrick's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Get some cultural insight at Times Square and Greenwich Village. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets (in Central Valley), Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh) and Long Beach (in Long Beach). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Washington Square Park, get a taste of the local shopping with SoHo, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and identify plant and animal life at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge.
