Big Apple

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 The Met Cloisters and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Step off the beaten path and head to Brooklyn Heights Promenade and Speed Boats Tours. Take a break from New York City with a short trip to Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site in Hyde Park, about 1h 50 min away. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Ground Zero Museum Workshop, make a trip to Washington Square Park, take a stroll through Times Square, and stop by Greenwich Village.

To see photos, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City trip planner.
