Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've added Wall Street, The Morgan Library & Museum, Free Tours by Foot, and other attractions to your itinerary. Get some cultural insight at Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site and Ground Zero Museum Workshop. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum (in Hyde Park) and DM Weil Gallery (in New Paltz). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Times Square, walk around Washington Square Park, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, and explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The northernmost New York City borough, the Bronx has many claims to fame, including being the birthplace of hip-hop and home of the New York Yankees.
You've now added New York Botanical Garden to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 8th (Thu): admire all the interesting features of Yankee Stadium and then take in nature's colorful creations at New York Botanical Garden. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get to know the resident critters at Bronx Zoo and then don't miss a visit to Little Italy in the Bronx.
