West Point

If you haven’t heard about West Point until now, you’d have to learn about it if you want to take a day trip there from New York. West Point is the United States Military Academy located 50 miles north of New York  City. The entire central campus of West Point is a historical site bombarded with dozens of historical landmarks. Most of the buildings in West Point have neogothic architecture and were constructed out of black and gray granite. You may need to take a guided bus tour to explore all of West Point conveniently.
