Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Market. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, go for a walk through Central Park, and take a stroll through Times Square.
