Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fifth Avenue and Times Square. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Tiffany & Co. and Strand Bookstore. The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial.
