Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fifth Avenue and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Let the collections at American Museum of Natural History and Frick Collection capture your imagination. Next up on the itinerary: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, take an in-depth tour of Ellis Island, admire the striking features of Empire State Building, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market.
