Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes 9/11 Memorial. Get outdoors at Gateway National Recreation and Central Park Zoo. Relax by the water at Jenkinson's Boardwalk and Fire Island National Seashore. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and admire the striking features of Empire State Building.
