Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fifth Avenue and 92nd Street Y Tisch Center for the Arts. Get some historical perspective at 9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Times Square, admire the landmark architecture of Grand Central Terminal, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
