Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Kids will appreciate attractions like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island. 9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel will appeal to history buffs. There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, don't miss a visit to Times Square, and admire the landmark architecture of Empire State Building.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, use the New York City vacation planner.

If you are flying in from Puerto Rico, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport.
