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 Ellis Island. Visit 9/11 Memorial and Algonquin Hotel for their historical value. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Times Square, make a trip to Fifth Avenue, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.
