Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your list of things to see and do now includes The Museum of Modern Art, Greenwich Village, Chelsea, and other attractions. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and Times Square Church. Get a sense of the local culture at Times Square and Statue of Liberty National Monument. And it doesn't end there: walk around Central Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel, and examine the collection at New York Public Library.
