Map: The Best NYC-Area Day Trips for Architecture Lovers

New York City is an architecture-lover's paradise, with iconic works from building designers as diverse as Stanford White, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Le Corbusier on seemingly every city block. But travel outside the five boroughs and you'll find plenty of sites that boast amazing architecture of their own, whether you're a mid-century modern fanatic or into gorgeously preserved 19th-century homes. Here, you'll find nine of our favorite architecturally significant sites, all of which are easily day-trippable from New York City. As an added bonus, fall is the perfect time of year to make the trip: Many of these spots are surrounded by nature, so you can cross leaf-peeping off your autumnal to-do list as well.
