Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Grounds For Sculpture and Greenwich Village. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Hyde Park (Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site, Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, &more) and Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park (in Poughkeepsie). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, walk around Brooklyn Bridge Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.
