Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at Stone Church and Times Square. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Hudson Beach Glass (in Beacon), High Point Cross Country Ski Center (in Sussex) and Trevor Zoo (in Millbrook). And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Shawangunk Mountains, delve into the lush surroundings at Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve, identify plant and animal life at Lakota Wolf Preserve, and admire the majestic nature at Minnewaska State Park Preserve.
