Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Get some cultural insight at Fifth Avenue and American Museum of Natural History. Venture out of the city with trips to Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Times Square, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, contemplate the long history of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and go for a walk through Central Park.
