Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to New York Public Library and Eastern State Penitentiary. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Island Beach State Park and Cupsogue Beach County Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Seaside Park Beach (in Seaside Park), The Original Ben Franklin 5 & 10 Store (in Lavallette) and Seaside Heights Boardwalk (in Seaside Heights). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Brooklyn Heights Promenade, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Met Cloisters, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, and examine the collection at Ground Zero Museum Workshop.
