Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Yunhong Chopsticksfor plenty of shopping. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Met Cloisters and Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Hyde Park (Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum & Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site) and Independence National Historical Park (in Philadelphia). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, walk around Washington Square Park, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and explore the galleries of 9/11 Memorial.
