Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.

The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park, explore the galleries of 9/11 Memorial, take a stroll through Times Square, and pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument.
