Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History will appeal to museum buffs. Your inner history buff will appreciate Gateway National Recreation and 9/11 Memorial. Step out of New York City to go to Bronx and see Bronx Zoo, which is approximately 42 minutes away. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Central Park Zoo, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and contemplate the waterfront views at Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.

To see where to stay, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the New York City planner .
