Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from the city and head to Gateway National Recreation and Long Beach. Get some cultural insight at Fifth Avenue and 9/11 Memorial. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Times Square, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel.
