Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fifth Avenue and West Village. 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays), Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach). Next up on the itinerary: explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Fire Island National Seashore.
