Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Mon): pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial and then take in the pleasant sights at Central Park. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, then examine the collection at New York Public Library, then take in the pleasant sights at Times Square, and finally admire the natural beauty at Hallett Nature Sanctuary.
