As I mentioned before, there is a lot to see and do in New York City, but there is also a lot to see and do outside of New York City. About an hour and a half drive from NYC (or 2 hours if you get lost) is Storm King Art Center, a 500 acre sculpture park. Well worth the drive (which was all fall loveliness) the park was one of the most unique settings for art I've seen. Storm King is open the next few weekends and then will close for the season. I'm looking forward to going back in the spring.
