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

There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, explore the galleries of Ellis Island, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, and stroll through Central Park.
