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 The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island capture your imagination. 9/11 Memorial and Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine will appeal to history buffs. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Bronx to see Bronx Zoo about 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Times Square, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial.
