Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Bring the kids along to Central Park and American Museum of Natural History. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Bronx Zoo in Bronx, approximately 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, get engrossed in the history at Ellis Island, take in the pleasant sights at The High Line, and enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building.
