Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore and learn at 9/11 Memorial and Golden Fish Gallery. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Peconic River Herb Farm (in Calverton), Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge (in Shirley) and Upper Delaware River (in Narrowsburg). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, don't miss a visit to Times Square, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and experience rural life at Goodale Farms.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the New York City tour itinerary planner.
