Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Escape the urban bustle at Bronx Zoo and Gateway National Recreation. Get some historical perspective at 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Paul's Chapel.
