Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Appreciate the collections at 9/11 Memorial and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Attractions like Fifth Avenue and Shopping Girlfriend NYC make great kid-friendly stops. And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, identify plant and animal life at Hallett Nature Sanctuary, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.
