Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like St. Patrick's Cathedral and St. Paul's Chapel. Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial capture your imagination. Step out of New York City to go to Sandy Hook and see Gateway National Recreation, which is approximately 38 minutes away. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Times Square, take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, and explore the striking landscape of Hamilton Grange National Memorial.

For maps, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City vacation trip planner.
