Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit Gateway National Recreation and Long Beach for some beach relaxation. Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Step out of New York City to go to Patchogue and see Fire Island National Seashore, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, make a trip to Central Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel.
