Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Fifth Avenue and American Museum of Natural History. Take a break from the city and head to Bronx Zoo and Central Park Zoo. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Times Square, examine the collection at 9/11 Memorial, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and look for gifts at Tiffany & Co..
