Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co.for some retail therapy. And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through Central Park, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, make a trip to Times Square, and admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center.
