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 Bryant Park, Woolworth Building, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and other attractions to your itinerary. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Madison Square Garden and St. Patrick's Cathedral. There's lots more to do: walk around Central Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and wander the streets of Greenwich Village.
