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 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Statue of Liberty National Monument are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: go for a walk through Times Square, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, take in nature's colorful creations at Hallett Nature Sanctuary, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine.
