Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Let the collections at 9/11 Memorial and American Museum of Natural History capture your imagination. Ellis Island and St. Patrick's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook, approximately Sandy Hook away. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and go for a walk through Central Park.
