Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Market. Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Venture out of the city with trips to Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook), Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Times Square, admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Central Park Zoo.
