Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some cultural insight at Fifth Avenue and 9/11 Memorial. Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library capture your imagination. Step out of New York City to go to Bronx and see Bronx Zoo, which is approximately 42 minutes away. It doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park and wander the streets of Times Square.
