Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Ellis Island, The Lion King and New York Comedy Club. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Visit 9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel for their historical value. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Bronx Zoo in Bronx, approximately 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Times Square, tour the pleasant surroundings at Hudson River Greenway, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and hike along East River Waterfront Esplanade.
