Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Times Square, Empire State Building, Grand Central Terminal, and other attractions. Kick off your visit on the 7th (Sun): appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, get a tailor-made plan with 9/11 Ground Zero Tour, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, then don't miss a visit to Grand Central Terminal, then take a stroll through Times Square, and finally stop by Hershey's Chocolate World Times Square.
