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 Chrysler Building, Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty National Monument, and other attractions you added. Escape the urban bustle at Central Park Zoo and Hudson River Greenway. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Fifth Avenue, take in the pleasant sights at The High Line, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, and walk around Central Park.
