Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like St. Patrick's Cathedral and The Met Cloisters. Get some cultural insight at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ground Zero Museum Workshop. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Hyde Park (Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site & Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum), Yankee Stadium (in Bronx) and Rockaway Beach (in Far Rockaway). And it doesn't end there: race across the water with a speed boat tour, walk around Washington Square Park, stroll through Central Park, and take a stroll through Times Square.
