Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Bronx Zoo as well as Fifth Avenue. Get some historical perspective at St. Patrick's Cathedral and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Times Square and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Step out of New York City to go to Great River and see Bayard Cutting Arboretum, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. Next up on the itinerary: settle in for a delightful tour with a horse-drawn carriage tour.
