Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Top of the Rock, Empire State Building, Times Square, and other attractions you added. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Visit 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Ocean Grove Beach (in Ocean Grove), Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Frick Collection, and get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour.
