New York City & The Hamptons

New York City truly has something for everyone. Theater lovers flock to Broadway, while music fans can enjoy classical melodies at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center uptown or head downtown to the Blue Note and the Bowery Ballroom for jazz and Le Poisson Rouge for edgier beats. From MoMA to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Guggenheim to the galleries of Chelsea, there’s no shortage of places in New York City to take in art. Speakeasies and cocktail bars may rule the night, but come daytime, travelers relax with a picnic in Central Park or walk along the High Line after dropping off shopping bags heavy with plunder from the department stores of Fifth Avenue or the boutiques of Soho.

New Yorkers get away from it all in summer by heading to the Hamptons, and so can you. This string of villages at the east end of Long Island has more than its share of seaside charms—lazy beach days, saltwater-scented breezes, water sports aplenty—plus harborside restaurants, buzzy nightclubs, and an abundance of golf courses. Most travelers get to the Hamptons on the Long Island Railroad or Hampton Jitney bus, but you may spot a helicopter or two when the well-heeled touch down.

Cooperstown Three Ways

Pack your bags for a weekend of baseball, breweries and culture

Talk of Cooperstown, New York, inevitably involves its most famous pastime: baseball. The one-stoplight village has been a pilgrimage site for fans ever since the Mills Commission claimed (probably erroneously) that Abner Doubleday had invented the sport there in 1839. Still, baseball’s not the only game in town, thanks to a flourishing arts community and growing beverage scene.
